Greater Manchester Health and Social Care Devolution
Greater Manchester (GM) is taking control of £6 billion of
public funding for health and social care from April 2016. It will
involve the transfer of certain powers and responsibilities from
national government to all 37 NHS and local authorities in
GM. Putting power into the hands of local
decision-makers means they can better meet the needs of the people
who live and work in this region.
The challenge is big; the money available for our public
services is reducing every year. But the opportunity is also huge
and our goal is to see the greatest and fastest improvement to the
health, wealth and wellbeing of the 2.8 million people in the towns
and cities of Greater Manchester.
To help us achieve this goal we have produced a five-year vision
for better health and social care in Greater Manchester which has
been shaped by each of the ten borough plans.
To find out more about this and the continuing conversations we
are having locally on these plans see here. You
