Getting unstuck

in health partnerships

August 2021


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


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.
