Bolton Locality Plan
10 locality plans are being developed across the 10 areas of Greater Manchester which will underpin this vision. Bolton CVS have been working with NHS Bolton Clinical Commissioning Group, Bolton Council and other key partners to influence and shape this plan for Bolton. Devolution will bring many challenges and opportunities for The Voluntary, Community and Social Enterprise Sector and we need to work together to rise to these challenges and make the most of the opportunities.

Bolton CVS gave an update on Bolton Locality Plan on 9th May, click here for more information.

Key priorities are now being chosen from the plan to undertake further development work and develop business cases to bid for Greater Manchester Transformation Funds. These programmes include, Transforming Primary Care, including developing the role of Health Improvement Practitioners and Social Prescribing. Partners are hoping to submit the business cases by the end of September. The Locality Plan is about transforming the way we do things, making better connections between existing services, building on community assets and developing an effective workforce that works with individuals to create better health outcomes.
In partnership with Healthwatch we are shaping plans for engaging with communities about their health and well being. Over the coming weeks our engagement team will be starting to meet with different communities to discuss what they would like to do to improve their health and identify the barriers to doing this. The first topic we will be engaging on will be on Bolton Shared Record. What communities tell us will feed directly into the development of services as part of the locality plan.
