Here you can read documents and find resources which explain how changes to health and care in Bury will improve services for people.

Locality Plan

Greater Manchester is leading the way nationally with its new health and care partnership approach.

This follows the historic devolution deal, which saw central government allow councils in the city region to take charge of its £6 billion health and social care budget.

Each borough in Greater Manchester has produced a guide to how it will tailor services for the people it serves, called a Locality Plan, and this document explains what changes and improvements Bury will carry out.

LCO Mutually Binding Agreement

This document explains in detail how the Bury Local Care Organisation partners will work together to make changes and improvements to health and care services. It was signed by the partners on 1 April, 2019, when the organisation was launched.
