The Four Localities Partnership brings together acute, community, primary care, voluntary sector, mental health, social care providers and commissioners across the localities of Bury, Oldham, Rochdale and Salford.
Our localities make up four of the ten localities across Greater Manchester Integrated Care Partnership (GMICP) with a combined population of approximately 1 million, 138 General Practices and 20 Primary Care networks.
We share a single acute and community healthcare provider – The Northern Care Alliance NHS Foundation Trust, which provides a range of healthcare services including four hospitals and associated community services - Salford Royal, The Royal Oldham Hospital, Fairfield General Hospital in Bury, and Rochdale Infirmary.
We also share two mental health providers, Greater Manchester Mental Health Trust which provides services in Salford, and Pennine Care Foundation Trust which provides services for Bury, Rochdale and Oldham.

Four Localities Partnership announced as a 'discharge frontrunner' site
In January we were announced as one of six discharge integration frontrunners.
As a frontrunner we will be looking at new innovative ways to discharge patients from hospitals in Salford, Oldham, Rochdale and Bury as quickly as possible, and free up beds for other patients, which will help to ease the pressure on the system and reduce waiting times. Where this is a success it can quickly be shared with other Trusts.
This is a great opportunity for us to build on the work of the Four Localities Partnership, which is using innovative approaches to improve patient experience – for example supporting patients in hospital to be more active as part of their recovery.
