NHS Kendal Integrated Care Community (Kendal ICC)
In order to improve the health and wellbeing of the local community, Kendal Integrated Care Community brings together health and social care professionals, GPs, the voluntary sector and the community as one team. We help people to manage long term health conditions, improve access to information about healthier lifestyles and provide more care out of hospital, so people can stay as well and independent as possible. We work with local people and groups; empowering them to take a more active role in their health and wellbeing. By understanding the challenges that our town faces, and using local knowledge, we can work better together to improve everyone’s health and wellbeing.

This diagram indicates the health priorities for Kendal, which were decided by local communities at several public forums in 2016 and this provides a focus for all the work we do in our ICC.
At the Kendal Unity Festival you will be able to visit our stall to have a mini health check, sign up to our e-newsletter, let us know your thoughts about healthy Kendal and gather some information on how to improve your health and wellbeing.
