We are working with our neighbouring local Healthwatch organisations in Blackburn with Darwen, Blackpool and Cumbria, to ensure that local people’s views are heard when it comes to changing how care is delivered locally over the next five years.
NHS, Council and Third Sector organisations are coming together in Lancashire and South Cumbria to redesign the health and care system to best meet the needs of residents.
NHS and local authorities are working across five areas to improve services, these are Morecambe Bay, Pennine Lancashire, West Lancashire, Central Lancashire and Fylde Coast. They provide a way in which all organisations and groups involved in health and care can join up to improve outcomes and care for local people, reduce pressures on services and make best use of financial resources.
Healthwatch Lancashire will continue to ensure that views of the public are listened to through representation on the Healthier Lancashire and South Cumbria Change Programme Board and through links with these local programmes.
