HEALTH & SOCIAL CARE DEVOLUTION: WHAT HAVE WE ACHIEVED TWO YEARS ON?
It is two years since Greater Manchester took control of its £6bn health and social care budget, and a further £450m to help us transform services.
The Greater Manchester Health & Social Care Partnership have recently published a report detailing some of the improvements to date, and how they’re already making a difference to people’s lives.
Some of the key achievements highlighted include:
Improvements in the speed of identification and treatment of dementia
Mental health has been put on an equal footing with physical health
Cancer is being fought via a mobile screening programme and ‘cancer champions’ are out and about in communities.
