We have four big priorities in our workforce plan: helping our leaders, carers and volunteers to develop; supporting our staff, apprentices and people on placements; improving our offer of employment; and filling difficult roles.

Workforce development

We’ve been working with Health Education England (HEE) to equip our workforce with new skills so they can offer better services.

Careers platform


We’ve developed the Greater Manchester Primary Care Careers platform to promote a sustainable and thriving primary care workforce across Greater Manchester.

Award schemes

We’ve also established award schemes that celebrate the people who’re making a difference to people’s health in Greater Manchester, as well as raise awareness of their vital roles in our communities.

Pride in Practice

Our Pride in Practice training project is helping dentists, opticians and pharmacists to meet the needs of LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender) people.
