In a time of change Health and Social Care across Greater Manchester is coming together to provide more efficient, cost effective healthcare and to encourage and engage the public in managing their own care where possible. GP practices across the borough who have historically worked independently have come together to work in a federated model to improve healthcare across the borough. Retaining their own identity and autonomy GP practices will work together and support community and hospital services including the public and voluntary sector to ensure healthcare is coordinated for the residents of the borough.
Rochdale Health Alliance was established in 2016 by GP practices from across the Rochdale Borough to streamline the way in which services are delivered. Each of the 3 area’s of the borough elected GP’s to represent their locality and become directors on the board. The board is supported by a management team who ensure the day to day functioning of the organisation.
