Greater Manchester Health and Social Care Partnership

The devolution of the £6bn health and social care budget to Greater Manchester has brought the NHS, public health and local authorities together to form a single locally accountable body, Greater Manchester Health and Social Care Partnership.

Greater Manchester Health and Social Care Partnership established Health Innovation Manchester to support the transformation of the health and wellbeing of the people of Greater Manchester by accelerating the discovery, development and delivery of innovative healthcare solutions.

The BRC will leverage the advantages brought by devolution via its Governance Board, which is connected through Health Innovation Manchester with the Greater Manchester Health and Social Care Partnership.

  • Commitment to prioritising the needs of Greater Manchester citizens, aligning the efforts of all partners and deepening Greater Manchester’s health science ecosystem
  • Greater value for money, removing organisational overlaps, with all partners focused on agreed priorities
  • A strong and resilient infrastructure for commercial investment aligned with the wider objectives of Greater Manchester Health and Social Care
