Integrated Care Communities (ICCs)

Homepage » About us » ICCs


Find out more about why there really is 'no place like home' on the North Cumbria Health and Care system website.|    


An Integrated Care Community (ICC) works together to improve the overall health and wellbeing of the community. We will do this by: 

  1. Joining up health and care services to work better together
  2. Providing more care out of hospital where possible
  3. Supporting people to have information about their health conditions

Health and social care professionals, GPs, the voluntary sector and the community will work as one team to support the health and wellbeing of local people. 

West, North & East Cumbria has been divided into eight ICCs based on groups of GP practices and their patients.  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.
