Health and Social Wellbeing Service Development

The report will set out the proposed Health and Social Wellbeing System to be delivered in Cumbria from the 1st April 2016. The aim of the system is to support people in Cumbria to live well, and build their capacity to be independent, resilient and maintain good health for themselves and those around them and:


  • Preventing people from developing long-term-conditions
  • Providing targeted intervention for people with recognised health and wellbeing needs
  • Preventing or decreasing the time for which a person requires formal care and support (and meet requirements set out in the Care Act 2014)
  • Preventing hospital admissions, and provide step-down from specialist services
  • Reducing demand on services.


The report builds upon the report to Cabinet in December 2013 and the further development of an Integrated Wellbeing Service.
