10GM has been working with partners from Population Health, Primary Care Networks and the wider VCSE sector to find innovative ways of tackling health inequalities.
This includes establishing Test and Learn Sites to explore how the VCSE sector and GPs can build lasting relationships that help them work together to tackle health inequality.
Over the last nine months, five Voluntary Community and Social Enterprise (VCSE) Sector Organisations have been working collaboratively with Primary Care Networks (PCNs) on a pilot ‘Test and Learn’ Project. The project has sought to develop new and more effective relationships between VCSE organisations and PCNs, so that they can offer better advice, support and services to help improve their local community’s health and well-being over their whole lifetime. It has the ultimate aim of understanding ways of addressing health inequalities across Greater Manchester, using the national ‘CORE20PLUS5’ model for tackling inequalities as a guide.
Following an open callout for applications from partnerships interested in becoming Test and Learn Sites, funded 5 partnerships, and appointed an evaluation partner. Information on successful bids can be found below:
