In North Cumbria we want to create happier, healthier communities. We are doing this by:

  • Integrating how health and care and other organisations work together
  • Supporting people of all ages to be in control of their own health
  • Being a great place to work
  • Providing safe and sustainable high quality services
  • Building health and care services around our local communities
  • Living within our means and spending resources wisely


People working in our health and care system have a valuable role in helping achieve these aims and we want to support you to develop the skills and capabilities to do your role whilst you personally learn and grow!


Cumbria Learning and Improvement Collaborative (CLIC) is here to develop a positive transformation in the health and social care system across North Cumbria by leading and embedding a culture of collaboration for continuous learning, continuous improvement, and living within our means - with our people and for our people. The three key areas of focus are developing people and teams, the Cumbria Production System (service improvement tools) and education and learning (clinical skills). We support learning together through development programmes, and communities of interest, both in the classroom and your workplace.


Our programmes have been developed to support North Cumbria Health and Care’s system priorities as well as supporting the development needs of countywide services. (Before booking please speak with your line manager to ensure that the offering fits with your local priorities and to agree how you will use the learning back in your work place to benefit patients and service users. It will be helpful to use a contracting document to do this.)


CLIC will support your learning by following up after any programme to find out what changes you have made and what impact this has had. This evidence is vital for CLIC to ensure that we can continue to offer support and to be able to extend this offering to meet our staff’s needs into the future.


Most of these programmes are open to all staff working within the health care system – including Primary Care, Cumbria County Council, CCG, third sector and community leaders and delivered locally to reduce time, travel and cost.
