We're a different sort of NHS organisation. The inclusion of the words ‘integrated care’ in our name sets us apart from traditional NHS organisations.
As an integrated care organisation, we work side by side with partners and the wider community to join up health and care for patients.
Before the Trust was formed on 1 October 2019, the former Cumbria Partnership NHS Foundation Trust and North Cumbria University Hospitals NHS Trust worked with partners in the wider North Cumbria Health and Care System to become one of the first 14 areas nationally to be confirmed as an Integrated Care System.
Now working as a single Trust, we want to become more embedded in our local community. Not just caring for people but improving their wellbeing too.
In June 2019 a North East and North Cumbria Integrated Care System was created. This means we're able to work together more easily across the region on shared challenges such as sustaining services.
