In this podcast (iTunes or Spotify), I give an overview, as Director of Population Health in Morecambe Bay, about the approach that we have developed as ‘Bay Health and Care Partners’ (BHCP) around population health. The double pentagon model draws on learning from across the UK and the world, leading think tanks, like the Kingsfund and local communities. The model has been developed with Dr Jane Mathieson – our wonderful Public Health Consultant, who retires this month, Prof David Walker – Medical Director at UHMB, Marie, Spencer, Jacqui Thompson, Hannah Maiden and Vicky Hepworth-Putt. BHCP is an Integrated Care Partnership which includes the GP Provider Alliance, The University Hospitals of Morecambe Bay Foundation Trust, Lancashire Care Foundation Trust, Morecambe Bay CCG, Cumbria County Council and Lancashire County Council and is committed to ‘better health, better care, delivered sustainably’.
So – if you’re interested in Population Health and/or you work as part of one of the organisations within BHCP, then listen in, enjoy and let’s continue this conversation.
