Getting unstuck

in health partnerships

August 2021


Uncategorized

We support areas who are already involved in local collaborative working to address challenges on their partnership journey.

Example:

In North Cumbria, we rebuilt relationships between the NHS and communities following the controversial decision to combine two stroke units into one hyper acute stroke unit. People were understandably very concerned: 85% of strokes are preventable, yet in one local area in West Cumbria, people were 104% more likely to have a stroke than the national average. We enabled cross-sector partners to identify local events where stroke prevention messages could be shared. This led to over 200 people being tested for stroke risk at community events, with over 20% being referred to their pharmacy or GP.
