Copeland ICCs

North Cumbria has been divided into eight Integrated Care Communities based on clusters of GP practices and their registered populations. By understanding the challenges that each area faces it is hoped that the community can work together with health and care organisations to improve the health and wellbeing of local people.

What’s happened so far?


Work is underway with the North West Ambulance Service to help keep people out of hospital where possible and teams from different organisations are working together to proactively support frail and elderly people and prevent falls.

Community events have helped people access support and advice to look after their own health and wellbeing and a Patient Participation Group ensures that the views of patients are heard. The ICC has supported recruitment efforts by hosting an event for overseas GP recruitment to attract people to the area.

We will be publishing news for Copeland ICC when this is available.
