Responding to discussions in Greater Manchester around a new partnership for health and social care, Dr Steve Kell, co-chair of NHS Clinical Commissioners, said: “We welcome the fact that commissioners and providers are working together with local government to locally determine partnership working on health and social care. A partnership of equals focused around improving local outcomes is what is essential. This is not about one part of the statutory commissioning system handing over its powers to another.

“NHSCC through its recent document entitled A Shared Agenda called for this sort of local determination and looks forward to seeing more details as the discussions continue.”
