North Cumbria Integrated Care NHS Foundation Trust (NCIC)

North Cumbria Integrated Care NHS Foundation Trust (NCIC)​, as an integrated care organisation, they work side by side with partners and the wider community to join up health and care for patients.  Before the Trust was formed on 1 October 2019, the former Cumbria Partnership NHS Foundation Trust and North Cumbria University Hospitals NHS Trust worked with partners in the wider North Cumbria Health and Care System to become one of the first 14 areas nationally to be confirmed as an Integrated Care System. Now working as a single Trust, they want to become more embedded in their local community.

In June 2019 a North East and North Cumbria Integrated Care System was created. There are lots of opportunities to join them at NCIC and be part of their organisation (career with them).

The Trust

We provide hospital and community health services to a half a million people. We’re responsible for delivering over 70 services across 15 main locations and we employ over 6500 members of staff.

We want to build a new integrated health and care system to create healthier and happier communities.

Maternity Unit

The Maternity unit at West Cumberland Hospital is an integral service to the Trust and the women and families of west Cumbria and beyond.

The busy unit at WCH operates a full range of antenatal and postnatal care, the unit was praised by the Care Quality Commission’s (CQC) bi annual report earlier this year, when women and families gave high praise to the service and its staff.

The unit is spilt between the Delivery suite and the post-natal ward. The delivery suite was a purpose built unit opened during phase one of the redevelopment of WCH in 2015. The secure unit is modern and spacious and offers women and families a comfortable environment in which to give birth.
