We are making big improvements to Greater Manchester’s health and social care services and benefiting local people’s health and wellbeing. There has never been a more exciting time to start a career in primary care across Greater Manchester.
We’re putting the right care and support in the right places, and at the right times, for everyone across our ten boroughs. We’re joining up health and social care services in the wider community, investing in the right specialist care, and keeping people well by promoting a better lifestyle. And it’s starting to pay off. From giving children a better start to spotting and treating dementia sooner, our changes are already making a difference. We’re also addressing wider problems that affect our health – like poverty, loneliness and poor lifestyles.
Devolution means the greatest, fastest improvement to the health, wealth and wellbeing of 2.8m people in Greater Manchester. But we can only do this by working together. That means everyone across our ten boroughs – from the NHS, council, fire service and police to private companies and charities, as well as individual health and care staff, volunteers, family carers, patients and local people.
