Bury Integrated Community Cardiology Pilot, Bury CCG, Bury & Rochdale Care Organisation (part of the Northern Care Alliance NHS Group) & Pennine Care NHS Foundation Trust
Bury’s community cardiology service model was developed in partnership between commissioners, hospital, community and GP services to improve access and outcomes for patients with a range of cardiovascular conditions. The development saw waiting times improve, reduced referral to treatment times, treatment closer to home, and a range of other benefits for patients and those working in cardiology services across Bury. Its success is being presented as a model of good practice for other NHS services around Greater Manchester to follow.
