Locality structures in Manchester

District-based commissioning (Adult Social Care)


Integrated Commissioning Districts (Children’s Services)


“encourage more active citizenship of residents, and enable
district based working which both takes account of local needs
and optimises capacity within the community from other council
services, partner agencies and the voluntary sector”
All agencies working with children in each of the six districts are
required to understand the current service provision, the specific
needs of their particular district and be able to identify any gaps.
Practice-based Commissioning Hubs (NHS Manchester)

PBC “enables primary care professionals…to redesign services
that better meet the needs of their patients”.
Locality boundaries
Aims of work


Increase level of engagement with JSNA process among
commissioners working at locality level
Build up local skills around needs assessment, data
analysis and community engagement

Stimulate joint working between commissioners in NHS,
Adult Social Care and Children’s Services

Improve extent of community and user involvement in
identifying local priorities via JSNA

Greater synergy between commissioning intentions and
delivery of services at neighbourhood, locality and
citywide levels
Intended outcomes

Better analysis and interpretation of the available data
and research evidence at locality level in order to identify
specific areas of "district focus" that complement the citywide priorities.

Agreement regarding a common approach to needs
assessment among Children’s Services Districts and
other partners to ensure consistency between different
local strategies.

A more joined-up approach to community engagement
that helps the three main partners to understand better
the different perspectives of local residents, patients and
service users.
Processes

Identify a Project Manager to agree and co-ordinate the
process across the different localities within the city
(agreed)

Set up a Project Team in each locality, made up of
representatives from the PBC Hubs, Children's Services
Districts and Adult Social Care, to lead the process of
developing the JSNA for their area.

The Manchester Joint Health Unit will provide additional
specialist support. However, the majority of work to
produce the Locality JSNAs will be carried out, and
owned, by the localities themselves.
Timetable

Early May – Meetings with key stakeholders to agree
projects leads in each locality

End of May - Meeting with project leads to define the
areas for the locality JSNAs and deciding who will be in
the project teams.

End of June - Hold initial meetings with project teams in
each locality

Mid-September – Completion of first drafts of Locality
JSNAs (end of National Dataset Project)

End of October – Completion and publication of final
versions of Locality JSNAs
Support needed

Information Centre – Support for creation of a ‘smallarea’ version of the national JSNA dataset

Department of Health – Links with PBC policy
development nationally and regionally

Project participants – Information about small-area data
and associated methodologies used in their own JSNAs
