Health and care professionals working in Bedford Borough, Central Bedfordshire, Luton and Milton Keynes are joining forces to change things for the better. Innovations and new ways of working are helping to enable residents to live longer, healthier lives.

Moments that matter case studies

Integrated Care Systems (ICS) mark a new way for NHS organisations, local councils, Healthwatch and voluntary, community and social enterprise organisations to work together. In Bedfordshire, Luton and Milton Keynes, our ICS is called the Health and Care Partnership and aims to make a positive difference to the 1 million residents who live here. Read more about our Partnership.

We want to show-case real-life examples, through the eyes of local people, where joined-up working has resulted in better outcomes for residents and our healthcare services. We’re calling these Moments that Matter.

Our Health Conversations on… podcast series focuses on the benefits of joined-up working across the ICS and the impact this has on local people and the opportunities it presents for new ways of working for better health outcomes. Listen to our podcasts.
