As a Partnership we are committed to develop further integration, working together even more closely with a continued focus on improving services for people across the County, including those for children and young people. This will provide more opportunities to improve health outcomes at a local level and will place the County in a strong position to be able to support wider changes across. 

Our ambition is to provide outstanding health and care to the people of County Durham, focussing on the health needs of our local population, breaking organisation barriers to increasing collaboration, collective strengths and streamline pathways.

The County Durham Partnership started in 2018 and has a strong and informed focus on local communities based on a shared understanding, priorities and outcomes combined with a deep knowledge of the strengths and needs of our local population.
