Kendal Integrated Care Community (ICC) was created in 2016 to help bring together local health and care professionals, GPs, the voluntary sector and the community to work as one team.
The focus of the ICC is to ensure that the people of Kendal are supported to improve their own health and wellbeing, and that when people are ill or need support, they receive the best possible joined up care.
The ICC helps empower people to take an active role in their health and wellbeing and supports people to manage long-term conditions, such as dementia, at home with the right support.
Kendal ICC works across organisations in the defined geographical area of Kendal and the surrounding parishes to improve the overall health and wellbeing of local people.
Nurse Practitioner Alison Nicholson, and Care Navigator Trudy Brayshaw work closely with the three Kendal GP Practices and their patients.
