Focused Care – About us
Focused Care CIC has been created out of a partnership between the Shared Health Foundation and Hope Citadel Healthcare CIC. The Focused Care board are passionate about reducing health inequalities and empowering people to take responsibility for their own health. The board have a wide breadth of experience across health, social and business sectors and are instrumental in overseeing the integrity and development of the model going forward across Greater Manchester and beyond.
Hope Citadel Healthcare provide GP services to their registered population in a caring, compassionate and safe way that leads to clinical excellence. They want to improve patient quality of life, and where possible make interventions and diagnoses that improve health.
Hope Citadel works in partnership with other NHS and non-NHS organisations, believing that their patients, families and communities can change to lead to healthier lives. Hope Citadel specialises in delivering wholeperson healthcare in areas of deprivation that have been previously under-doctored.

The Shared Health Foundation is an initiative of the Oglesby Charitable Trust and set up to address health inequalities across Greater Manchester. In our city region, the very poorest face a life expectancy over a decade shorter than the most affluent.
Working with individuals, communities, health professionals, voluntary sector and business partners, they encourage a person-centred approach. Through nurturing innovative ideas and replicating best practice, they empower individuals to take responsibility for their own health.
The Shared Health Foundation strongly believes in the Focused Care model as a means for helping some of the most needy in our city to make a return to the road to stability, recovery and transformation.

The Greater Manchester Health and Social Care Partnership is the body made up of the 37 NHS organisations and councils in the city region, which is overseeing devolution and taking charge of the £6bn health and social care budget.
The Greater Manchester Health and Social Care Partnership team is the group of people who came together on April 1 2016, from the former health and social care devolution team and the former NHS England Greater Manchester team. The purpose of the team is to ensure Greater Manchester delivers on its vision to deliver the greatest and fastest possible improvement to the health and wellbeing of the 2.8m people of Greater Manchester.
Jon Rouse, Chief Officer of Greater Manchester Health and Social Care Partnership, which is supporting the scheme, said: “The outcomes from Focused Care are heartening. Our mission is to deliver the greatest and fastest improvement to health for the 2.8million people in Greater Manchester.
“We can see that this is transforming patients lives and in turn taking the burden off some of the acute services that these patients tend to use in times of need.”
“It is important that we transform the lives of the people in Greater Manchester who need it most.”
