Think! Right Treatment, Right Place

Funding boost for GM 

The NHS and social care in Greater Manchester are to share a multimillion-pound cash 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 make sure hospitals and social care can deal with 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 cash boost will support the region’s existing accident and emergency (A&E) delivery plans and help departments across the region to deliver a robust, coordinated approach aimed at ensuring 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, if appropriate, would be then checked; helping individuals access the right level of home care and support.

Do you know your numbers?

A blood pressure test is a simple way of checking if your blood pressure is too high or too low.

Blood pressure is the term used to describe the strength with which your blood pushes on the sides of your arteries as it's pumped around your body.

A blood pressure test is the only way to find out if your blood pressure is too high or too low, because most people won't have any obvious symptoms. Having a test is easy and could save your life, and if you are worried about your blood pressure you can ask for a test at your GP surgery.

Where should I get my blood pressure tested?

You can get your blood pressure tested at a number of places, including:

  • at your local GP surgery
  • at some pharmacies
  • at home, using a blood pressure testing kit
