Learning Partner to the Test, Learn & Review Initiative – exploring voluntary and faith sector relationships with Primary Care Networks (PCNs) in neighbourhoods
IVAR will work as a Learning Partner to the Lancashire and South Cumbria Integrated Care System, alongside voluntary, community, faith and social enterprise sector (VCFSE) partners and Primary Care Networks (PCNs) in five areas, namely Central Lancashire, Pennine, Blackpool Wyre & Fylde, West Lancashire and Morecombe Bay/South Cumbria to facilitate emerging learning across a range of partners as part of the Test, Learn & Review initiative.
This initiative aims to look at ways to harness the leadership, power and capacity of communities to improve their own health and wellbeing. This in the context of the changing role of commissioning with a more community centred focus, in a future Integrated Care System (ICS).
This will involve two main areas of work:
- Facilitate a learning process amongst this group of VCFSE partners, PCNs and Lancashire and South Cumbria ICS around topics of common interest to the group. IVAR will provide bespoke learning support to the five areas to help them embed this initiative.
- Share learning from this experience of the five neighbourhoods and show case it for all other primary care networks in the Lancashire and South Cumbria footprint
