About Local Care Partnerships

Local Care Partnership is the term adopted in Leeds to describe the model of joined-up team working to improve health and care delivery to local people, a requirement set out in the NHS Plan.


What we do

Local Care Partnerships across 19 different Leeds neighbourhoods link closely to the new Primary Care Networks funded by NHS England, bringing valuable partnership input from the Third Sector, Housing and elected councillors alongside Primary Care, other NHS health care services and children and adult social care.

Local Care Partnerships – Strategic Information

Leeds is divided geographically into 19 areas which will increasingly be the building blocks delivering the NHS Plan and Leeds Health and Wellbeing strategy in local neighbourhoods.

Each LCP will use a multi-agency approach working with staff and local resources including those which impact on the wider determinants of health, such as housing or employment. LCPs include the medical practices clustered as Primary Care Networks (PCNs).

Local Care Partnerships offer Third Sector opportunities for engagement across a diversity of organisations – including hyperlocal, citywide and regional despite differences in capacity and resources. They are each at different stages of development.

There are many ways that we can build on Social Value and Community Assets, including links with the ABCD approach and there may be potential for future funding.
