Local councils and NHS organisations in Greater Manchester have agreed with the Government that decisions affecting local people should be made here, instead of nationally. This devolution deal means we will control how billions of pounds of public money is spent in Greater Manchester. This new way of working will cover areas such as policing, housing and transport – and also health and social care.
The locality plan
The locality plan highlights the plan for health and social care in Manchester over five years (2016 – 2021). The plan highlights the aim to make sure that many more people are cared for outside of hospital, closer to where they live, and receive services seven days a week. This will mean we increase the funding of GP services, community health and social care teams, and the voluntary sector. The money will be found by saving money on hospital-based services.
