Community Views Engagement Event: Help transform health and social care in Rochdale borough

Local people were asked to get involved in transforming local health and social care services at a Community Views engagement event in September.

The event took place on 21 September, 6pm-7.30pm at the Centre of Wellbeing, Training and Culture (CWTC), formerly known as Multicultural Arts and Media Centre. Attendees who attended the event were updated by HMR CCG and Rochdale  Borough Council on the progress of Rochdale’s Locality Plan.

The Locality Plan is the blueprint for health and social care in Heywood, Middleton and Rochdale. It has two fundamental goals: to enable health and social care services across the borough to deliver real improvement in the lives of local people; and to ensure health and social care services can be delivered at a time of increased cost pressures. The financial challenge is critical: if services continue to be delivered in the same way, health leaders will face a shortfall of around £30 million in the short term alone.

The Community Views event builds upon progress made at the initial engagement event in March 2017, at which local people, patients and representatives from CCG and council partner organisation shared their views on how the borough’s health and social care services can have a sustainable future.

Feedback from the Community Views event will be uploaded here soon. In the meantime for more information please email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or call 01706 652151
