Following a consultation conducted by Greater Manchester Combined Authority (GMCA) and its constituent local authorities in 2016, the Department had discussions with GMCA and partner organisations about the order that confers, rather than transfers, certain local authority public health functions on the GMCA, to be exercised concurrently with the constituent local authorities. In line with statutory requirements, the GMCA and constituent local authorities all provided written consent to the order.
