Greater Manchester health and social care chief celebrates Salford Together

Balancing health and social care

Salford Together was delighted to welcome Jon Rouse, Chief Officer of the Greater Manchester Health and Social Care Partnership last week to hear about work that has taken place in Salford to bring together health and social care,  as well as future plans to reshape services and improve peoples lives.  It was also an opportunity for Jon to meet some of the staff and teams working across the city and to discuss their experiences.

After the visit, Jon took to Twitter to publically recognise the work of Salford Together over the last five years and gave a ‘thumbs up’ to achievements including:

  • the strength of our involvement with the voluntary sector through our relationship with Salford CVS
  • resident engagement to understand the need of local communities
  • work to reduce non-elective admissions into hospital
  • the reduction in the number of falls through falls prevention and postural stability programme
  • stabilisation of A&E attendances
  • increasing standards in care home across the city
  • the rigorous evaluation used to streamline sustainable new models of care with neighbourhood teams at their heart.
