Together A Healthier Future is a programme to improve our health and care system in Pennine Lancashire, which is made up of East Lancashire and Blackburn with Darwen.

Over the last two years we have been working with residents, volunteers, doctors, nurses, health and care professionals, community workers and others to develop proposals that put you and your family at the centre of everything we do. Your health and care will be provided around your needs, and not those of organisations.

We want to make use of everything that is good about Pennine Lancashire, our people, our communities, our volunteers, our open spaces and our services and we want to work with you to do this.

We have published a draft plan for health and care services in the area. The draft plan is a blueprint to improve the health of people living in Pennine Lancashire (which covers Blackburn with Darwen and East Lancashire), as well as improving health and care services in the area.  For more detail please read the draft Pennine Plan.

You can find out more from our Case for Change.

We are also part of a wider programme, Healthier Lancashire and South Cumbria. You can find out more here.
