Working Together 

Links community and NHS to keep and improve health services in West Cumbria. 

The NHS doesn’t have all the answers. There has been success on NHS and community working together on maternity services but there is more to do, for instance on stroke services, staff recruitment and retention, telemedicine, and care at a distance.
