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.
This builds on our well-established way of developing new services, such as extensive care. Here, clinical and non-clinical colleagues from many different organisations came together – leaving their organisational baggage behind – to pool their skills and knowledge to develop a fantastic service with the patient at the centre.
