Programme Outline
About Healthier Together
Healthier Together is a review of health and social care, which aims to
improve and save the lives of people who access their local GP, hospital,
social care and community health services.
It aims to improve outcomes and reduce the current variation between
different parts of the population so all residents across Greater
Manchester can access and receive excellent health care
For Greater Manchester to
have the best health and
care in the country
To create a single service where you get health and care services at the
right time, in the right place, for the right treatment
NHS needs to change
• Francis Report
• Keogh Report
• Sir David Nicholson – specialise hospitals, improved community care
GM Fast Facts
Variation in health outcomes — up to 14 years life expectancy
difference for men depending on where you live
Between April 2012 – March 2013 A&E visits increased by 43,7000
GM has among the worst rates of early deaths from cancer, heart
attack, lung disease, stroke and liver disease
¼ of all ambulance journeys are for older people who had a fall –
community services would be more appropriate
GM Fast Facts
125 patients admitted to hospital beds every day but spend less than
24 hours there – many could have been treated out of hospital
None of our hospitals meet all the recognised national standards for
safety and quality
According to Dr Foster around 30% of people in hospital don’t need to
be there
Improve the health and wellbeing of people in Greater Manchester
Safe services based on best practice, clinical standards and better specialist
care in our hospitals.
Improve equality of access to high quality care
Improved, timely access to appropriate staff, facilities and equipment across the
whole of Greater Manchester.
Improve people’s experience of healthcare service
Integrated care provided in the most appropriate setting to provide better
outcomes and experience for patients.
Make better use of healthcare resources
Care provided by sustainable organisations that allow best possible use of the
total resource available to the health and social care system in Greater
Case for change
• 550 lives a year in Greater Manchester could be saved if the UK meets
the European average survival rate for cancer. (Best = 1000).
• Heart Failure patients admitted to cardiology wards have a 20% lower
mortality rates compared to those admitted to general wards.
• 1 million attendances at Greater Manchester A&E Departments in 2011.
Over a quarter of these were for minor injuries and could have been
treated at another suitable location (e.g. Primary Care, Pharmacy).
• Mortality figures are affected by day and time of admission.
Health & Social Care Reform
Healthier Together & our
Health & Social Care Reform
Integrated Care
Example of some work streams:
• Local level agreements on the common assessment framework
• Agreeing on a core skill set for self-care in-patients
• Possibility of commissioning self-care common frameworks at FEIs/HEIs
• Incorporating mandatory training in self-care for Bands 1-4 NHS Staff
• Offering CPD for volunteers in areas that require establishment of
networks e.g. modules in dealing with dementia
Secondary Care
• System cannot sustain the level of demand placed on secondary
• Services are unaffordable in terms of workforce, technology and other
running costs
• Ageing population means increasingly complex patient needs for the GM
• Prevention & Self-care – looking after patients proactively and enhance
patient quality
Secondary Care
