The Greater Manchester Health and Social Care Partnership was formed following our city region’s historic devolution deal with Government.
The Partnership is made up of our local NHS organisations and councils, as well as people from NHS England and NHS Improvement, our emergency services, the voluntary sector, Healthwatch and others including the mayor of Greater Manchester.
Together, we’re finding what works on a local level, and responding to what people need across all ten boroughs. We’re using our experience and know-how to improve the way we spend our public health money. And we’re making sure that big decisions are being made together, locally.
Having taken charge of our health and social care services, we aim to improve the health and wellbeing of all the residents of Greater Manchester.
The Greater Manchester Population Health Plan, published in 2017, set out how we would begin to use our devolution opportunities to help everyone here have the best start in life, to live well and to age well.
This bold and ambitious programme includes significant investment in GM Moving.
We are funding and mobilising the GM Walking Ambition , to make walking a normal part of everyday life for physical activity and active transport.
We are now taking further and faster steps to transform population health and tackle inequalities.
This involves reshaping how we think about health and wellbeing. We’ll focus on the features that shape our lives – such as housing, employment, finance, education, transport and the environment – and across our city region build “a whole system approach” to population health.
The GM Moving In Action plan for a healthier, happier city region is an important part of turning this vision into a reality.
