Rochdale is a town in Greater Manchester at the foothills of the South Pennines in the dale on the River Roch 10 miles northeast of Manchester.
Heywood, Middleton and Rochdale Integrated Care Partnership serves approximately 242,218 people. The population is relatively young, and is diverse, with over 150 different ethnic groups. The communities experience high levels of deprivation, and the proportion of residents aged 65 or over is growing.
We’re transforming our services; supporting people in their homes rather than allowing unnecessary admissions to hospital, increasing the number of people we see and support at Rochdale Infirmary, and working together to get people home with care and support as quickly as possible. Our integrated health and care teams, working with primary care services, are going from strength to strength, alongside voluntary, housing and all age services.
Our Local Care Organisation (LCO), One Rochdale Health and Care, steers integrated health and care services for our residents. It’s made up of the key local providers across acute, community, mental health, primary care, adult social care and voluntary sectors, along with public health expertise. We’re keen to listen to our communities and work with them to reduce the health inequalities across Rochdale.
