As Greater Manchester announced its model of public services, the NHS published its plan for the next ten years (NHS Long Term Plan).

The GM model embeds the concept of place-based working into practice; promoting a model of public service delivery that is truly preventative and person-centred, with integrated place-based teams of co-located professionals working together.

These themes are reflected in the NHS Long Term Plan which focusses on providing services outside hospitals and moving towards more joined-up, preventative and personalised care for patients.

Greater Manchester has the most advanced devolution deal in the UK and is the only city region to have been given control of its health and social care spending.

Join us as we explore the impact the devolution deal has had on the health and care system and how it will continue to change across Greater Manchester over the next ten years.

Michelle Romdhani Co-production group for personalised care - GM Health & Social Care

6 years ago my family were thrown into the world of Health and Social care after my brother was assaulted and left with a life changing brain injury and many different complex needs. Once he was stable I knew I had to be instrumental in giving him the future he deserved. He wanted to live not just exist as he was currently.

Having worked as a Product Developer for many years it soon became apparent how my skills could be used transferabley. I worked hard to build strong long term relationships with the many Health professionals in my brothers life. I needed support short term so we could reduce their involvement long term. I needed to build my knowledge, skills and confidence around my brothers new conditions in order to take on his future challenges. As a family we have learned to be pro-active on his behalf. Prevention is better than cure for him and us. Personalisation hasn’t meant extra money.

Once his life was heading in the right direction I knew I had to stand up for others out there who are existing instead of living. Those who don’t have a sister, brother, mother, father or friend who can speak up for them and not let them fade away because they don’t have a voice. Over the last 4 years I have been apart of truly genuine Lived Experience Co-production groups. Groups which have worked strategically at board level within NHS England and Greater Manchester. I have been apart of shaping national policy and have spoken at numerous events to share my experience of a very complicated Health and Social care system.
