Lancashire and South Cumbria Integrated Care Board established today

We wanted to let you know about a significant change to the way health services are planned, paid for and delivered in Lancashire and South Cumbria.

From today, the eight Clinical Commissioning Groups across Lancashire and South Cumbria have been replaced by an Integrated Care Board (ICB), which will be known publicly as NHS Lancashire and South Cumbria.

The new organisation will be responsible for NHS spending and the day-to-day running of the NHS in the area.

The change aims to ensure that services better meet the needs of local people. It will also see closer relationships between health and care partners, including local authorities and voluntary and community groups, who will work together to agree on local priorities.

Today, we have made this change public with a range of communications including this news release. If you’d like to find out more, please do take a look at our new website.

We would be grateful if you could help to spread the word by liking and sharing our posts on our FacebookInstagram and Twitter accounts.

If you need to get in touch with us at any time, you can find all the details on our contact us page.
