Progress being made in North West with Transition Alliance

The programme of work with the North West Transition Alliance is progressing well.

A number of events have now taken place in support of Think Local, Act Personal.

The work is focused on driving the personalisation agenda forward and enabling the sucessful implementation of choice in health and social care, as well as innovation and efficiency. A key element will also involve market development - building on existing networks to set out the implications for the transition for the independent and voluntary sector that are working to support independence and choice at home.
