Taking Charge of our Health and Social Care in Greater Manchester


In February 2015 the 37 NHS organisations and local authorities in Greater Manchester signed a landmark agreement with the Government to take charge of health and social care spending and decisions in our city region. This included a commitment from us to produce a comprehensive plan for health and social care.

The final draft of this plan ‘Taking Charge of our Health and Social Care in Greater Manchester’ was endorsed by the Health and Social Care Strategic Partnership Board on Friday 18 December, 2015. It details our collective ambition for the region over the next five years, setting out our direction of travel.

There is also a summary document.

In the New Year, up until the publication of the final document in March, people across Greater Manchester will be able to give their views on the Plan – and those plans from their own local areas - as well as talking to us about how they might play a part in delivering the ambitions.
