Making better use of our joint resources is crucial, including staff, services and money. We now have an opportunity to develop better ways of working between the existing partners, services and professionals on the Fylde coast.
Known as ‘Healthier Fylde Coast’, the Integrated Care Partnership brings together the local NHS, Blackpool Council and Lancashire County Council.
For the past 18 months local NHS and council organisations have been working in partnership to plan health and care services for the next five years across the Fylde Coast.
We don’t need any legislative changes to make progress as we can work within our existing organisations to strengthen partnership working, further develop services and improve effectiveness and efficiency.
We commissioned Healthwatch Blackpool to carry out a number of focus groups with these groups of people on our behalf. We wanted to know their views on local health and care services, as well as any ideas for improvement.
People with experience of common mental health problems
People living in rural communities
People in work
The insight from these focus groups was used to further develop the strategy. You can view a sketchnote of the workforce feedback below as well as the full engagement report.
