·         Devolution Taking Charge in Manchester

The Health and Wellbeing Board considered a verbal presentation from Stuart North Chief Operating Officer Bury CCG.  The presentation contained the following information:


Greater Manchester Devolution Agreement settled with Government in November 2014; the agreement delegates powers over areas such as transport, planning and housing – and a new elected mayor with £22 billion to be handed to Greater Manchester.


Memorandum of understanding for Health and Social Care devolution signed February 2015 by NHS England plus the 10 Greater Manchester councils, 12 Clinical Commissioning Groups and 15 NHS and Foundation Trusts.   Local health and social care decision makers take control of estimated budget of £6 billion from April 2016.


The Chief Operating Officer Bury CCG reported that the devolution is necessary to address some of the poor health outcomes across Greater Manchester;

·         more than two thirds of premature deaths in GM are caused by behaviours which could be changed;

·         on any day there are 2,500 people in a hospital bed who could be treated at home or in the community

·         Four out of ten GM children are not ready to start school when they’re five-years-old; and four out of ten leave school with less than five GCSEs

·         By 2021 there will be 35,000 people in GM living with dementia; more than 10,000 will have severe symptoms and need 24 hour care


The Chief Operating Officer reported that work is already underway, by the end of December, hubs are operational in each CCG area, providing 7-day access for patients who need medical help across Greater Manchester with further hubs opening early 2016.


£450m has been earmarked to fund improvements known as the Transformation Fund.  In response to a Member’s question in respect of the transformation fund, the Chief Operating Officer reported that the Local Authority/CCG and partners will bid for the money; the money will be divided into two pots; an innovation fund and a separate amount for time limited dual running of services.  Effective and independent management of the Transformation Fund will be critical in ensuring the right projects are funded to deliver the agreed strategy.


In response to a Member’s query the Chief Operating Officer reported that the Elected Mayor will not have powers over health and social care devolution but instead will be accountable to the Council Leaders of the ten Local Authorities within Greater Manchester.


The Chair of the Board commented that the success of health and social care devolution will be reliant on Members of the Public changing the way they access health care and healthcare professionals will be required to focus on preventative work while patients will need to take a greater initiative to self care.


The health and social care policy lead reported that a Devolution Manchester engagement event in conjunction with radio station Key 103 will be held on Friday 4th March.  The event will provide members of the public with an opportunity to express their views on the proposals/the Boroughs locality plan via an online survey  ...  view the full minutes text for item HWB.764
