We provide high quality community and specialist services to people living in:

  • Bolton

  • Community Dental (provides services in all of the above areas plus Bolton, Tameside, Trafford, Glossop, Stockport and western Cheshire)

Services closer to home

The majority of our services are delivered in patients’ homes or at locations close to where they live, such as clinics, health centres, GP practices, community centres and schools.

As a provider of both mainstream and specialist care our role is to focus on providing cost effective NHS care by keeping people out of hospital and supporting vulnerable people throughout their lives.

 As a dedicated provider of community services our strategy is to bring more care closer to home – this means providing a wider range of services in community settings to keep people healthier for longer and developing more specialist services to support people to live independently at home.


To improve local health and promote wellbeing in the communities we serve.

We will do this by working closely with local people and partners to promote good health and to be a leading provider of excellent community healthcare services in the North West.


Our values are Patient Centred, Encourage Innovation, Open and Honest, Professional, Locally Led and to be Efficient.
