A PUBLIC showcase on changes being made to health and social care services in the borough is to be held.

The event will be held at the Elizabethan Suite at Bury Town Hall from 10am to noon on October 30.

It comes as Bury has recently taken charge of its health and social care budget through the Greater Manchester Devolution scheme.

Proponents of the transference of responsibility say that is has allowed the CCG to take a “fresh look” at what services are available in the borough and “future proof” them to improve outcomes.

At the meeting attendees will be able to hear about changes made to date and share their views on future plans to help shape future provision.

Cllr Andrea Simpson, Deputy Leader and Cabinet Member for Health and Wellbeing at Bury Council, said: “This event is our chance to share the story of transformation so far. We want to showcase how we now have more connected health and social care services with the right support in the right place to enable us to reduce inequalities and for people to remain well for longer. We are at a key point to be able to share some real examples of how the changes to health and care at a neighbourhood level are making a difference and what this means for local people. There will also be a genuine opportunity to hear about and shape our future plans and to tell us how you feel you can help to shape Bury’s future.”
