This is the single commissioning body now responsible for all health and care commissioning in Manchester. Effectively its main job will be to issue two very large contracts – one for the Single Hospital Service and the other for the Local Care Organisation.
Manchester Health and Care Commissioning is a partnership between Manchester City Council and the Manchester Clinical Commissioning Group. It brings together the commissioning of health, adult social care and public health in a single partnership arrangement.
The aim is that, by having a single commissioner, the benefits will include:
- A single commissioning voice
- Commissioning for integrated and proactive health and social care
- A more strategic role enabling larger scale transformation of services
- Better use of our collective assets
