North Cumbria Integrated Care NHS Foundation Trust provides health services to a population of half a million people.
Our shared vision is to support people in our communities to live happier, healthier and more hopeful lives. We aim to achieve this vision through embedding our core values in everything we do.
We have been a Foundation Trust since 2007. This means that we are part of the NHS but have a significant amount of freedom in the way we deliver our services. Decision-making is done at a local level, which means we can be more responsive to the needs of the people of Cumbria. We have members and governors who are local people that input into how we shape our services.
