Working together is the best medicine! It’s at heart of everything we do in the County Durham Care Partnership. We have a strong and well-established track record of effective partnerships having been working at integration for a good 10 years.

This means joining up our systems, creating improved collaborations between our health and social care teams to give you better, connected health services, closer to home.

This effective collaboration between health, social care and voluntary organisations across County Durham is bringing real, positive improvement to people's health, wellbeing and experience of care.

We're improving, integrating and redesigning services where it matters most, to better meet your needs and keep the people of County Durham happy, healthy and, as much as possible, at home.

Joining up health and social care

Our provision of positive health and social care has always been joined up, but here in County Durham we make those links much more directly and that benefits everyone. We will only make our services better, as we continue to develop and improve going forward together.
