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 past 18 months we have worked 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 and we set out our proposals in our Draft Pennine Plan which we published in December 2017. Thank you to everyone who has taken the time to let us know what you think of our proposals.
We have now published the Final Pennine Plan - read it here.
On 16 September, Blackburn with Darwen Borough Council welcomed Duncan Selbie the Chief Executive of Public Health England.
In December 2017, Sport England selected 12 areas across the country to benefit from a share of £100 million of National Lottery funding to develop new approaches to building healthier, more active communities.
