The Bury Local Care Organisation will be responsible for the majority of health and care services provided outside hospital, with a team of around 600 staff, including district nurses, social workers, health workers and therapists, and an operating budget of £27m for 2019/20.

A key aim of the group is to focus health and care services in the home and the community, with hospital or care homes only being used for those whose needs cannot be met elsewhere. There is also a big focus on tailoring services for different areas of Bury which have different levels and types of demands, as well as encouraging people to have healthy lifestyles. For example, Prestwich has a high proportion of older people and so we are carrying out more strength and balance training here to help reduce the number of injuries caused by falls. The borough has been divided into five areas to help bring services closer to communities. Treatment and support will be carried out by ‘integrated neighborhood teams’, which are teams of health, social care, therapists and Voluntary, Community and Faith Alliance (VCFA) professionals, who will work closely together to deliver more joined-up care and support.
