Devo Manc

Devolution Manchester, or Devo Manc as it affectionately known, will enable health and social care spend in the Greater Manchester community to be managed and invested locally. The Greater Manchester Combined Authority (GMCA) represents ten local authorities in the region and has established a Devolution Agreement to drive forward economic growth and improve the lives of the population through greater local responsibility and the reform of public services.

Devo Manc will have a significant impact on the way the NHS operates in Greater Manchester and health and social care innovation will play a huge part in enabling the delivery of streamlined, efficient and effective services.

We were one of the first NHS Innovation Hubs formed by the Department of Health in 2001, and with over 200 years of combined NHS experience, TRUSTECH are the NHS Innovation Experts.

We bring a wealth of knowledge to the region and the Greater Manchester healthcare innovation arena, and will be looking to provide the necessary assets, skills and expertise to support the evolving Academic Health Science System, and to help Devo Manc to succeed.

This page will provide a central repository of Devo Manc information and, more specifically, topics which touch on health and social care.

It is intended to be the ‘go to’ place for NHS staff, employers, patients, Medtech SMEs, companies and industry.
