There are many local networks around the country and around the North-West for Registered Care Managers. They operate it many different ways. There is no standard way. We aim to work with colleagues in the GM Health and Social Care Partnership and Skills for Care to help support and develop Registered Managers as a profession.

As we think Registered Managers are the fulcrum for change and are at the highest pressure point in the system we want to find ways we can – working with health, local authority and other partners – to build strength and support into the Registered Manager Network across the GM area.

Read here the online version of the article published in this months’ Care Management Matters Journal written by Paul Simic and Gina Kidd on the issue of RCMs and mental health arising from the workshop held at the September Lancashire Care Conference. Next steps involve some primary research and a ’roundtable’ debate with key stakeholders organised by Care Management Matters and scheduled for spring 2019.
