What is the Partnership?

Cheshire and Merseyside Health and Care Partnership is a collection of NHS, local authority, voluntary, community, faith and social enterprise organisations from across the nine local authority areas that make up Cheshire and Merseyside.

We come together to work collaboratively, developing strategies that improve public health, reduce health inequalities and ensure the health and care system across Cheshire and Merseyside is sustainable.

We have a responsibility to improve the health and wellbeing of our population. We do this by:

  • Coordinating plans to make sure our services continue to meet everyone’s needs
  • Joining up services to provide better care, closer to home
  • Ensuring all our partners across Cheshire and Merseyside focus on addressing the causes of poor health, as well as improving diagnosis and treatment

We will need to make decisions about how best to deliver health and care services, ensuring they meet the needs of local people, are high quality, safe and affordable. Only by making these decisions will we achieve our goal of helping the 2.6 million people in Cheshire and Merseyside to stay healthy and live longer.

Together with our partners, we are working towards statutory Integrated Care System status by 1 April 2022. Find out more about this within the ICS development section.

Place-based transformation

Much of the work taking place to transform health and care is in the hands of organisations and communities within the nine local authority areas that make up Cheshire and Merseyside. Each borough, or place, has its own partnership of organisations responsible for developing a plan for, and with, their community. Find out more about your local area.
