10GM is working with partners from Population Health, Primary Care Networks and the wider VCSE sector to find innovative ways of tackling health inequalities.
The term Population Health refers to measures to improve the health of a whole population. It includes the physical and mental health and wellbeing of people, while also reducing health inequalities.
Greater Manchester has a strong track record of taking action to improve Population Health and tackle inequalities and is committed to doing more. Greater Manchester is in a unique position to systematically improve the health of the population due to devolution, the development of its Integrated Care Partnership, existing partnerships, and the shared boundaries with a Mayoral Combined Authority.
We know that the VCSE sector plays an important role in helping people to stay well and prevent health problems, as well as supporting those who are unwell. Addressing deep-seated inequalities requires collaboration between the NHS, localities, the VCSE sector, GM Combined Authority, research and education organisations, local businesses, and people and communities.
10GM employs a Strategic Lead for Population Health, envisioned as a shared role between the GM VCSE sector and the GM Population health team. The role is intended to consolidate and strengthen the influence of the VCSE sector in Greater Manchester's decision-making and development of the Greater Manchester Population Health system.
Our Strategic Lead supports the Greater Manchester VCSE Population Health Group. This sub-group of the Greater Manchester VCSE leadership Group brings together VCSE leaders to update one another on best practice developments across GM, and at a local authority level, and plan how we can have an influence together. We make sure there is VCSE representation in GM strategy and policy discussions and work together to be as efficient and well-targeted as possible.
Population Health is one of the delivery themes under the VCSE Accord Agreement. This is a three-way collaboration agreement between the Greater Manchester Combined Authority the Greater Manchester Integrated Care Partnership, and the GM Voluntary, Community and Social Enterprise (VCSE) Sector. The purpose of this Accord is to further develop how we work together to improve outcomes for Greater Manchester’s communities and citizens.
As part of our Population Health work, 10GM has funded 5 partnerships to become 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.
10GM is working with GM Integrated Care Partnership to implement the Fairer Health For All Framework.
