What is integrated care?
The Greater Manchester Integrated Care Partnership and NHS Greater Manchester are 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.
All the different health and care organisations across Greater Manchester meet together to discuss the big issues affecting the health of people in the region, and work together on improvements. They link in with wider partners including the voluntary sector and community groups.
This new NHS organisation, overseen by a Board, is in charge of the NHS money and making sure services are in place to put plans into action. Made up of representatives from the NHS and the local council, they’re responsible for making decisions about health services in their area. You may see this abbreviated to ‘NHS Greater Manchester’ or ‘NHS GM’.
The partnership operates at three levels: neighbourhood, locality and Greater Manchester and has a single vision and strategy. Hospitals, GPs, community services, voluntary services and others have come together to form ‘provider collaboratives’ within all 3 levels, helping to join care and help people live well across our ten boroughs.
