Taking Charge? Learning from health and social care devolution in Greater Manchester

Lecture Theatre 4, Brooks Building , Lecture Theatre 4, Brooks Building 53 Bonsall Street Manchester M15 6GX

Jon Rouse, appointed Chief Officer of GM Health and Social Care Partnership in March 2016 will be reflecting on the progress made and the challenges that he has faced since Greater Manchester signed a devolution deal with the government in 2015.

For the first time, the devolution deal gave leaders in Greater Manchester the ability to model decisions on a combined £6 billions budget. Their aim was to drastically transform the health of Greater Manchester's 2.8 million people and build clinically and financially sustainable model of health and social care.
Jon has played a critical leadership role, working closely with partners to deliver the five-year vision to radically improve health outcomes in Greater Manchester. His role has had a significant effect in the region's wider public sector, ensuring that health and social care play a central role in the econmic growth planned through devolution.

Before taking up his current role, Jon Rouse, a graduate of the University of Manchester, was Director General for Social Care, Local Government and Care Partnerships at the Department of Health from 2013 to 2016, and was previously Chief Executive of the London Borough of Croydon, having held similar roles at both the Housing Corporation and the Commission for Architecture and the Built Environment. He has also held a wide range of non-executive positions with organisations including English Partnerships and Homelessness International and was a non-executive director on the Department of Health’s board until 2010.
