Lancashire and South Cumbria Integrated Care System is a partnership of NHS, local councils, voluntary sector and community organisations working together to support the 1.7 million people who live in this part of North West England. We call this partnership Healthier Lancashire and South Cumbria.

The NHS Long Term Plan, published in January 2019, states that each integrated care system must produce a five year strategy over the coming months.

The effectiveness of our partnership in Lancashire and South Cumbria will be judged by our ability to join up health and care services, to listen to the priorities of our communities, local people and patients and to tackle some of the biggest challenges we are all facing. To support this, eight partnership priorities are being proposed for working together and delivering safe and sustainable services.

We are committed to involving staff from all partner organisations and local people in the development of our shared five year partnership strategy. A survey has been created for voluntary, community and faith sector staff to share their views and opinions about how it could be made easier and what the opportunities are for working together across Lancashire and South Cumbria.

The survey asks just four questions and takes only a couple of minutes. Please complete the survey here:https://www.smartsurvey.co.uk/s/ICSstaffSurvey/
