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.
