Pressure on services and funding cuts mean that if we carried on doing things in the same way there would be a funding gap of £134m by 2021 (£66m NHS Trusts, £46m Manchester Council and £21m CCG).

45% of the health and social care budget is spent on just 5.5% of the population. Some of these people, with multiple needs or long-term conditions, could be better looked after through more help and support in the community. This would be more convenient for patients, their loved ones and carers, and would help with personal independence, continuity of care and would reduce emergency admissions to hospital, which are very expensive.
