NHS and fire service work together to ease winter pressures

Firefighters have joined forces with the NHS in a new health partnership to tackle health and social problems and reduce winter pressures.

Five organisations will sign a new consensus – NHS England, Public Health England, the Fire and Rescue Service, Age UK and the Local Government Association – promising to work together to make changes throughout their workforce.

The consensus sets out how the organisations can work together to encourage local action to prevent or minimise service demand and improve the quality of life of people with long term conditions.
