Think! Right Treatment, Right Place

Funding boost for GM 

The NHS and social care in Greater Manchester are to share additional funding pot to help prepare for colder weather.

Lord Peter Smith, Chair of the Greater Manchester Health and Social Care Partnership Board announced a £5m fund to help hospitals and social care manage the extra workload the winter months brings.

Poor weather and seasonal increases in illness such as flu pile pressure on emergency departments during winter. This money will be used to support the region’s A&E delivery plans and help departments across the region ensure patients are cared for in the most suitable place.

There will also be a renewed focus on supporting patients to return home when medically fit or to another community setting as quickly as possible for recovery. Their support needs will be checked to ensure the right level of home care and support.
