Devolution of Health and Social Care in GM - what has changed?

The devolution of health and social care in Greater Manchester began in April 2016. In May 2017 Health and Social Care Partnership and the Voluntary, Community and Social Enterprise (VCSE) sector signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) which set out a way for the VCSE sector to be better engaged and linked in with the Health and Social Care devolution agenda both at a strategic level and within each of the 10 local authority areas.

So almost two years on from the signing of the MoU, has anything changed?

At a recent event we interviewed delegates to find out their thoughts about the devolution of health and social care in Greater Manchester and the role the VCSE sector plays in it. Find out what they said in these three short films:

"What changes have you seen or experienced since the start of devolution of health and social care in Greater Manchester?"

"What role can the VCSE sector continue to play in the devolution of health and social care in Greater Manchester?"
 

"What can be done to ensure that VCSE organisations remain engaged with the devolution process in Greater Manchester?"
