Everyone in Dorset deserves to live well. That’s why our NHS organisations, councils, public services and voluntary and community partners are working together as an integrated health and care system (ICS).
Integrated care is about removing traditional barriers between services so people can access the support and care they need when they need it.
Dorset became one of England’s first pilot ICSs in 2018, and this way of working is now being replicated across the country following the publication of a government white paper for health and social care reform.
We’ve joined up to tackle all the things that affect our health and wellbeing so that we can make real change and improve things in our communities.
We are Our Dorset.
