This is your opportunity to further develop and revise proposals for Pennine Lancashire.
Delivering health and care across Pennine Lancashire is complex and confusing for professionals, patients and their families, which restricts our ability to provide excellent care and, in many cases, is financially unsustainable. As organisations who are responsible for, or have an interest in delivering health and care services, we have agreed to work together to ensure we provide care in the right place, at the right time and as one team. We call this work Together a Healthier Future.
In planning Together a Healthier Future we want to harness everything that is good about Pennine Lancashire; our people, our communities, our volunteers, our open spaces and our services. We want to put you and your family at the centre of everything we do and provide health and care around your needs, and not those of organisations.
Our vision is:
“For all of us in Pennine Lancashire to live a long and healthy life. Any extra help and support we need will be easy to find, high quality and shaped around our individual needs.”
Over the last year the Together a Healthier Future Team have been working with residents, volunteers, doctors, nurses, health and care professionals, community workers and others to develop our plans for change.
We have listened to what people have had to say through Summer Engagement events and activities and now we have a number of further developed proposals that have been embedded into a draft Plan for Pennine Lancashire.
Throughout Winter 2017 we will be attending various community meetings, engaging through digital communication methods and having localised outreach engagement discussions with people across Pennine Lancashire. We want to make sure you have the opportunity to have your say to further develop and refine these proposals to ensure that they meet the needs of all of us.
If you would like more information, or would like us to attend any group meetings that you are a part of please contact us
