Which organisations are involved?
Health and social care leaders from across Greater Manchester have been working together to review the services they offer and the way they are delivered.
Local health and social care teams are working together and are developing pioneering ways of delivering care in communities and hospitals that are tailored to the specific needs of their local populations and respond to some of the challenges they face.
As part of the review they are finding that there is a need for the 10 local communities across Greater Manchester to co-ordinate plans and solutions. Many improvements to services can be planned and implemented at a local level in each of the 10 areas. However there does need to be some degree of consistency in the implementation of these plans as people often use services that are not in their local community. Planning for the whole of Greater Manchester is particularly important when thinking about how hospital services are delivered in the future.
The NHS and Councils working together
The NHS and local authorities across Greater Manchester have come together to work collaboratively for the future of health and social care.
Leading the review and reforming the way we receive care are the 10 local authorities and the 12 Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs). Their details and contact information can be found here.
