Lancashire and South Cumbria Health and Care Partnership

We are a partnership of health and care organisations working together across Lancashire and South Cumbria to empower and support the 1.8 million people in our communities to have the best start in life, so they can live longer, healthier lives.

Lancashire and South Cumbria Health and Care Partnership is the name of our Integrated Care System which joins up health and care services, listens to the priorities of our communities, local people and patients and tackles some of the biggest challenges we are all facing. 

This website provides information about the work of the partnership, the developments in integrated care and gives you the opportunity to get involved locally.
