We're transforming a range of services in Bury, Heywood, Middleton and Rochdale, Oldham, Stockport and Tameside and Glossop.

We’re focusing on many different transformation schemes within the following service areas:

  • Acute (hospital) and crisis mental health services for adults 
  • Community mental health services for adults and older adults
  • Specialist services - including
    • Community, hospital and crisis services for children and young people 
    • Learning disability and autism services
    • Rehab and high support services

We want to keep people out of hospital by improving and expanding our community services for people of all ages and better supporting families and carers. 

We’re focusing on better supporting people experiencing a crisis, so they can avoid hospital. We’re strengthening existing services and exploring new approaches, working closely with colleagues, patients, carers and a range of partners.

We also want to ensure people who need hospital care can be safely discharged or stepped down as quickly as possible. This will rely on a lots of different professionals working together, involving the patient and improving our planning and processes to eliminate unnecessary waits and delayed discharges.

For updates on our progress, keep an eye on our website news section and social media.

Much of our transformation work is possible through additional national funding. However, in common with NHS organisations nationally, we’re still required to make financial efficiencies. This is a real challenge, but our staff are working hard and we're making steady progress.
