Cumbria CVS has been involved in supporting collaborative, partnership working for a long time, but it’s an area of work that seems to be generating a lot of interest in recent months, and we’d like to tell you about some of the exciting work we’ve recently been involved in.
Clare Edwards has been our Health Partnerships Officer (working in North Cumbria) for one year now. She’s made huge progress in ensuring that local third sector organisations are involved in the development of Integrated Care Communities (ICCS) across North Cumbria, including supporting the involvement of two representatives of the third sector in the delivery groups of each of those ICCs. That work is about to take another step forward, as NHS England have provided the funding to pilot Third Sector Referral Coordinator posts based within the ICC Hubs in Maryport and Penrith.
Those jobs are currently being advertised and we’re expecting a lot of interest, so if you’re interested, you’ve got until Tuesday (7 May) to get your application in. See vacancies section on our website for full details.
