Greater Manchester Health and Social Care Partnership is governed by the Health and Social Care Partnership Board, which meets in public each month. The Partnership comprises the local authorities and NHS organisations in Greater Manchester, plus representatives from primary care, NHS England, the community, voluntary and social enterprise sectors, Healthwatch, Greater Manchester Police and the Greater Manchester Fire and Rescue Service.
As part of the devolution agreement, from April 2016, Greater Manchester took control of £6bn of public money to look after and pay for its own health and social care throughout the region. It means that decisions are no longer made in Whitehall but right here in Greater Manchester instead.
Several organisations in Greater Manchester, agreed with NHS England that a new Transformation Fund of £450m should be established to help us make the changes we need to radically improve health and social care in our city-region and make sure we can afford everything we need to look after our population in the future.
