In February 2018 the Care Quality Commission carried out a Local System Review of Health and Social Care in Cumbria.
The purpose of this review was to understand how people over 65 move through the health and social care system with a focus on the interfaces between services and it is one of 20 targeted reviews taking place across the country.
The review report has been published by the Care Quality Commission and is available on their website: http://www.cqc.org.uk/news/releases/cqc-publishes-review-how-local-health-social-care-systems-work-together-cumbria
The next step is to develop a plan which sets out how the local system will implement the recommendations. Cumbria CVS would like to involve you in helping to shape this plan before it is agreed by the Health and Wellbeing Board. They are holding three workshops on the following dates:
11 June 2018 9:30 – 11:30 The Oval Centre, Workington
12 June 2018 9:30 – 11:30 Botcherby Community Centre, Carlisle
14 June 2018 9:30 – 11:30 Castle Street Community Centre, Kendal
The objectives of these sessions are to:
- share the findings of the system review, update on progress that has already been made and the next steps
- discuss and shape the action plan for Cumbria
We would be pleased if you could attend one of these sessions. To confirm your attendance please email firstname.lastname@example.org by Friday 8 June 2018 confirming your details and which session you are attending.
