It is a place that is undergoing significant regeneration, creating a physical space that meets the aspirations of residents, and is transforming its approach to health and social care integration, having recently established a joint commissioning organisation and local care organisation that will help deliver the place-based aims of the Bury 2030 Strategy to improve the health, wellbeing and life chances for residents.
