What is the Cheshire and Merseyside Health and Care Partnership?
Our Partnership was established to confront the health and care challenges in Cheshire and Merseyside of population health, the quality of care, and increasing financial pressures.
As its name suggests, the Partnership is not an organisation but a collection of organisations responsible for providing health and care services in Cheshire and Merseyside – the NHS, GPs, local councils and the community and voluntary sector – coming together to plan how best to deliver these services in future so that they meet the needs of local people, are high quality and are affordable.
Each year in its folder Business Plan , the Partnership agrees what are its priorities, how these will be delivered on and by whom. It has appointed a Board, made up of people from Partnership organisations, to make sure the work is done each year and to represent the views of organisations and communities.
The Partnership funds a small Executive team, working to the Board, to oversee the many programmes of work underway, facilitate the open and honest conversations that are necessary, help to build consensus and ensure that the business plan is delivered each year.
