About the Humber and North Yorkshire Health and Care Partnership

Humber and North Yorkshire Health and Care Partnership comprises of NHS organisations, local councils, health and care providers and voluntary, community and social enterprise (VCSE) organisations.

The Partnership is one of 42 Integrated Care Systems (ICSs) which cover England to meet health and care needs across an area, coordinate services and plan in a way that improves population health and reduces inequalities between different groups.

We work across a geographical area of more than 1,500 square miles and serve a population of 1.7 million people, all with different health and care needs. Our area includes the cities of Hull and York and the large rural areas across East Yorkshire, North Yorkshire and Northern Lincolnshire.

New partnerships bringing together care needs

Integrated Care Systems (ICSs) are new partnerships between the organisations that meet health and care needs across an area, to coordinate services and to plan in a way that improves population health and reduces inequalities between different groups. Watch the video on this page to find out more.

Since 2018, they have been deepening the relationship in many areas between the NHS, local councils and other important strategic partners such as the voluntary, community and social enterprise sector. They have developed better and more convenient services, invested in keeping people healthy and out of hospital and set shared priorities for the future.

Get involved

We are committed to involving local people as far as possible in the work that we do. We strive to be as open and transparent as possible and want to involve staff and the public in the work we are doing. We want to hear your views and ideas about how we should tackle the challenges our health and care system faces and how we can make improvements to the lives of you, your family and your community.

This website provides a space to share our upcoming, ongoing and past engagement opportunities. 

Our Vision

Our Partnership’s ambition is for everyone in our area to: start well, live well and age well.

This means shifting the focus of our work from picking people up when they fall to helping to prevent them from becoming unwell in the first place and supporting more people to manage their health and wellbeing at home so they can get on with living happy and fulfilling lives.

Our Partnership Long Term Plan sets out our key goals and aspirations for our population over the next five years.
