Manchester is… a single functional economy.
Manchester “punching below its weight”?
Agglomeration economics suggesting a need
for a critical mass of skills, jobs, industries.
increased density of well-connected people
and firms is highly correlated with strong
economic performance and perhaps most
significantly, improved environmental
outcomes
A need for more coherent spatial development
across a GM footprint (housing, transport)

What is the GM Health Commission?



Greater Manchester suffers from some of the worst
health in the country.
To counter this the Greater Manchester Health
Commission was set up in 2007 to improve the
health of the two and a half million people living in
Greater Manchester. The Commission is the formal
partnership made up of leading representatives from
Greater Manchester’s Councils, NHS Primary Care
Trusts, and the Higher Education Sector, who are
working together to put right and tackle health
inequalities in the city region.
Our vision is of a Greater Manchester with improved
life expectancy, health and well-being, with a clear
reduction in health inequalities experienced by
different parts of the city region.
Why do we need a GM Health
Commission?



Greater Manchester is a thriving area, rich in
tradition and culture. However, the city region
also suffers from some of the worst life
expectancy and health problems in the UK.
Health inequalities show that on average a child
born today in Greater Manchester is unlikely to
live as long as a child born almost anywhere else
in England.
There are big inequalities between different areas
across Greater Manchester, for instance, with
alcohol responsible for almost twice as many
months of life lost for men in some areas than in
others.

Due for publication November 30th 2010
Creation of a new national Public Health Service.
It will be responsible for vaccination and
screening programmes and have powers relating
to public health emergencies.
PCT responsibilities for health improvement will
transfer to local authorities, who will employ the
Director of Public Health jointly appointed with the
Public Health Service.
Ring-fenced public health budget, allocated to
reflect relative population health outcomes, with a
new health premium to promote action to reduce
health inequalities.
Public Health will need to influence GP consortia
commissioning through Health & Wellbeing
Boards.

To provide oversight to NHS commissioning activities which extend across
consortia should they be retained
To provide oversight of service reconfigurations
To provide a mechanism for the combined authority to influence the 25%
of total public sector spend that is health in the GM City Region
To ensure the maximum possible social value is levered out of this health
spend in pursuit of GM Strategy Priorities
To provide a focal point for maximizing the health and wellbeing impact of
any potential GM wide community budgets (currently under discussion
with the Treasury)
To support GP consortia in recognizing where there are conurbation wide
inter-dependencies of healthcare provision (e.g. as exemplified by work
undertaken on stroke service reconfiguration across Greater Manchester)
To maintain the focus currently provided by the GM Health Commission on
total public sector commitment to population health interventions.
To ensure the work of the Public Health England is deployed as effectively
as possible in meeting GMS priorities and to ensure the most effective
deployment of resource for GM level Public Health
To ensure that the resilience and emergency planning functions of the
national public health service are appropriately landed with the GM
emergency planning functions.
