Message about the future of the HMR LTC test beds programme

The Heywood Middleton and Rochdale CCG Long Term Conditions Test Beds Programme will conclude on May 24th 2018 when the current contractual arrangements with Test Bed partners comes to an end.

We wish to take this opportunity to say that we are pleased to have been part of what has been an exciting journey to look at innovative ways of providing healthcare. Sincere thanks are extended to GP practices in Heywood, Middleton and Rochdale, as well as the Rochdale and Bury Local Medical Committee (LMC), who made this possible for their participation and support in taking part in this ground breaking initiative.

As partners we will continue to work together to support and complete the evaluation report while ensuring that the valuable learnings and insights gained are used to continue to develop initiatives aimed at prevention of ill health and harm that are central to the borough’s transformation programme for health and care. It will also contribute to development and fine tuning of other risk stratification tools and processes across Greater Manchester that will similarly predict and avoid future illness in primary care .




We’re aiming to improve care for people who have, or may develop, certain long term health conditions by anticipating their health needs before they happen.

By gathering new insights using pseudonymised (non-identifiable data) data and making use of telecare technology, we plan to help GP practices find the best ways to detect, manage and prevent long term ill health.

Initially, we’re focusing on type 2 diabetes and certain heart and lung diseases.
