Manchester Health Devolution

Manchester is at a pivotal point in its history. As a city it is vibrant and dynamic with a diverse and growing population. The city boasts many accolades, has an established reputation for innovation and offers: world class commercial, cultural, sporting and academic assets as well as internationally renowned healthcare research and provision. However, these assets are not reflected in the health and wellbeing outcomes of the local population, which are amongst the worst in the country. There are also significant inequities within Manchester with a difference in life expectancy of over eight years between different parts of the city.
