More than 350 delegates attended Oldham’s Locality Devolution Difference event on Monday 22 October – an event which marked the formal launch of Oldham Cares.
The session set out what health and social care devolution means for Greater Manchester and provided the audience with details on how we are making it work in Oldham through speakers, case studies and videos.
A marketplace was also held before and after the formal presentations, which gave our suppliers, partners and teams the opportunity to showcase the work that has taken place so far and a platform to discuss future plans – all focussed on the impact the transformation is having on the lives of real people.
Special guests at the event included Jon Rouse, Chief Officer for Greater Manchester Health and Social Care Partnership.
This is the first of a number of public events focusing on how services are changing and the role of the public in caring for themselves and those around them.
Oldham Cares brings together Oldham Council, NHS Oldham CCG and other health and social care providers in an Alliance to share skills, experience, talent and resources to deliver a better care experience for all.
