The borough or ‘Place’ we live in and the communities we belong to affect our health in a number of ways. By working together, we know that we can drastically improve population health. We do this by combining the services of GPs, social care, mental health, hospital, community and voluntary organisations into a more joined up system, focusing on a person’s individual needs and providing them with the support to manage their own care.
Place is our way of describing joint working within each of our nine local authority boundaries of Cheshire and Merseyside. Place is where shared decisions are made about how the local health and care resources can be used to improve the health of the population and deliver more joined up care.
Our Places are the primary means of delivering benefits for people, however for some challenges there is a greater benefit in working together as a partnership across the wider footprint of Cheshire and Merseyside.
