Hear about how health and social care is being transformed at showcase event

Press release   •   Oct 23, 2019 16:15 BST

Local people are invited to an event to find out about changes happening to health and social care services to transform health and wellbeing in Bury.

The event will take place on Wednesday 30th October in the Elizabethan Suite of Bury Town Hall. At the event, local people, health and care staff along with representatives from the voluntary sector, will hear about how these services are working differently to provide more joined up and responsive care at a neighbourhood level, and what this means for Bury residents.

Through Greater Manchester Devolution, where the region took charge of its health and social care budget, Bury has had the unique opportunity to take a fresh look at what health and social care services are in place now and what we need to ensure that services are future proofed so that outcomes for communities are improved.

At the event, people will hear about what has been achieved to date, and there will also be opportunities to share views on future plans and for people to share how they can help shape Bury’s future.

The event will take place on:

Wednesday 30th October 2019

10am – 12 noon

The Main Hall of the Elizabethan Suite, Bury Town Hall

Cllr Andrea Simpson, Deputy Leader and Cabinet Member for Health and Wellbeing at Bury Council,  said: “This event is our chance to share the story of transformation so far. We want to showcase how we now have more connected health and social care services with the right support in the right place to enable us to reduce inequalities and for people to remain well for longer.

“We are at a key point to be able to share some real examples of how the changes to health and care at a neighbourhood level are making a difference and what this means for local people. There will also be a genuine opportunity to hear about and shape our future plans and to tell us how you feel you can help to shape Bury’s future.”
