CLIC is a shared ‘umbrella’ initiative which exists to develop a positive transformation in health and social care across North Cumbria by leading and embedding a culture of co-production and working together with and for our patients. 

Through working and learning together, we have the ability to:

  • Build the knowledge, skills and capability to transform health and care services and create a positive culture in which to care
  • Keep people connected, continuing to learn and develop their careers, encouraging them to stay with us in North Cumbria
  • Share our improvements, helping to speed up the knowledge and transfer of good practice and reduce variation

Moving forward, the work of CLIC will look and feel a bit different to what it has to date. Whilst we will continue to provide local development programmes that add value to organisational learning, we will also be spending time building networks to connect people within and across sectors, and will host a platform for accessing and sharing information and knowledge

With this in mind, over the next couple of months we are going to be reflecting on the learning from COVID-19. There have been many positive changes that have arisen out of the pandemic, and to mark National Learning at Work Week (17th – 23rd May 2021), we will be sharing some useful information, fantastic improvement stories, and some great opportunities for you to develop your skills. Please keep an eye out for the CLIC eBulletin for further details (if you don’t currently receive our monthly eBulletin and would like to, please sign-up at:
