What is integrated care?

The Greater Manchester integrated care partnership is helping organisations work better together with people and communities.

We want people across all our boroughs to stay well, whatever their age, and whatever issues or conditions they might be managing. We’re bringing together all the different organisations that support people’s health and social care, so that services can join up and act faster when people need support.

Integrated care means starting with the person, understanding they’ll have different needs as they move through life, and connecting them with the right care.

Our plans

Health services in Greater Manchester are now more connected – down to neighbourhood level. Professionals are working together across sectors, sharing skills and knowledge as if they were one organisation to improve the health, wealth and wellbeing of the 2.8 million people living here.

Our top priorities, to build on success and make a difference to people’s lives, are far-reaching. Together, we’ll tackle the causes of inequality, prevent poor health and improve life chances.

How it works
