The Bury Local Care Organisation was formally launched on 1 April 2019, although we have been developing over the last year or so.
Our aim is to enable improvements in population health and wellbeing, by providing improved health and care services to the people of Bury. We are an innovative formal alliance of organisations, you can find out more about them below: Bury Council; Bury GP Federation; BARDOC; Bury Voluntary, Community and Faith Alliance; Northern Care Alliance NHS Group (Salford Royal and Pennine Acute Hospital NHS Trusts); Pennine Care NHS Foundation Trust; Persona Care and Support Ltd.
Our partners have made a commitment to work together as a single new body within the public sector, responsible for the transformation and delivery of a group of services and improving people’s health.
We also work closely with NHS Bury CCG which, with the Council, forms what is known as the One Commissioning Organisation (OCO).
The Bury Local Care Organisation will work as one joined-up team rather than separate organisations, leading to more coordinated help and support, getting the best value for public money.
