THIS EVENT IS CPD CERTIFIED



This conference will bring key stakeholders from both the regional and national level together with policymakers, to discuss health and social care in Greater Manchester.


Delegates will assess the progress and future of Manchester’s devolution programme in transforming care within the region, the precedent this has set for further health devolution within England, as well as the emerging opportunities to develop Manchester into an international centre for research, collaboration and innovation in the life sciences industry.


Further sessions consider potential options for tackling inequalities at a local level, challenges for primary care in introducing 7-day services and priorities for embedding parity of esteem within the devolution programme.
