Integration in action
A short introduction about the Greater Manchester (GM) Devolution Deal and delivery of ‘Taking Charge’ followed by.
MLCO was formed on 1 April 2018 and is a partnership organisation powered by Manchester University NHS Foundation Trust, Greater Manchester Mental Health, Manchester City Council, Manchester Health & Care Commissioning and the Manchester Primary Care Partnership.
MLCO brings together the teams from these organisations that provide community-based care in the city in a new way. Almost 3,000 staff from Manchester’s adult and children's NHS community teams and adult social care teams have now been deployed to MLCO. They include nurses, social workers, health visitors, therapists, support staff and many other health and care professionals.
These teams are now working together as part of one single organisation for the first time. Through a neighbourhood-based approach, MLCO is empowering staff and communities to make changes to ensure that health and care services are the best they can be and that care is better coordinated around resident’s needs. This includes the development of a range of new ways of working in the community using the latest evidence and technology, as well as ensuring best practice becomes the norm across the city.
