Who we are

The Health North "Connected Health Cities" (CHC) initiative is a collaboration of key partners and stakeholders working together, learning from each other, to improve care for our citizens living in the North of England.

Connected Health Cities supports the use of data in improving health services for patients. We follow strict information security procedures to ensure we are using health information responsibly.

We will operate as four city regions, coordinated by a central hub based in Greater Manchester:

Our key partners include:

  • The NHS
  • Local universities
  • Local authority services such as social care, housing and education
  • Healthcare service provider organisations
  • Healthcare charities
  • Patient and public associations
  • Companies producing healthcare products and services
