Healthier Fylde Coast brings together the NHS, local authorities and other partners to improve health and care across Blackpool, Fylde and Wyre.
- Our plans are guided by feedback from patients, their families, local communities and clinicians. In summary, they have told us they want:
- A focus on keeping people well
- Empowered patients and communities who support themselves and each other
- A better experience for patients, their carers and families
- More support to help people better manage their long-term conditions
- Coordinated care so that people don’t have to repeat their medical history unnecessarily
- Timely and appropriate care in community settings where possible
- Less unnecessary time spent in hospital
- A motivated, happy workforce
- A financially stable system that makes best use of the ‘Fylde Coast pound’ (the total money available on the Fylde Coast for health and care services)
