Cumbria's Clinical Commissioning Group first to sign up to Compact
Cumbria’s Clinical Commissioning Group has become the first in the country to sign up to a local Compact.
Cumbria has been part of Compact Voice’s Priority Areas Programme – Compact Voice works with different areas across England on specific projects to support Compact work - so we are particularly pleased with this development.
Tom Elkins, Compact Voice Manager said:
“It is fantastic that the Clinical Commissioning Group in Cumbria has signed up to their local Compact. The voluntary sector has a vital role in the new health landscape, through delivering local services or helping influence how health priorities are met. By working together like this, Cumbria is setting a positive example – we hope that many other areas will follow their lead.”
Cumbria CVS have issued a press release about the development, which you can download below.
Compact Voice has also recently published ‘Informing and Influencing the new health landscape: a guide for local Compacts’, which aims to help local voluntary organisations ensure representation in a similar way to Cumbria.
