Our plans and reports

We’re working together with partners across the region to make Greater Manchester a place where everyone can live well. We want to give children the best start, and support older people to live as independently as possible. We want everyone to have the care and support they need, when they need it, and feel able to take an active role in their own wellbeing.

Right now, just some of our priorities are: to tackle waiting times for planned hospital care, to transform urgent and emergency care services, and to better support children and young people and those with long-term conditions.

You can check how we’re putting people at the heart of integrated care by browsing or searching here – from community-based care to illness prevention projects.

A Greener NHS for Greater Manchester

Climate change is the single biggest threat to our planet, environment, and the people of Greater Manchester. The principal aim of healthcare is to improve people’s health, yet we know that carbon emissions and pollution generated by healthcare delivery are having the opposite effect. We are the first integrated care system to declare a climate emergency.
