Central Manchester Networks Limited (CMN) was incorporated in November 2014. It was formed to be a GP Provider Organisation (GPPO), now commonly referred to as a Federation, for the GP practices in the central Manchester CCG area. All the practices signed up to be shareholders, and PCM is therefore owned by these GP practices. The shareholders elect the Board of Directors, who must all work within one of the shareholders' practices. The Board is responsible for running CMN and they employ staff to help with the day to day operation of the services that are provided.

    Equality, Diversity & Inclusion

    NHS Workforce Race Equality Standard

    NHS Workforce Race Equality Standard (WRES) requires us to demonstrate progress against a number of indicators of workforce race equality.
    We have committed to implement the WRES from April 2016. In line with the key WRES milestones for 2016 agreed by NHS England, we have published below our baseline data for 2015/16 on the WRES performance indicators including an action plan.

    Equality Information

    The Equality Act (2010) created the Public Sector Equality Duty (PSED). The PSED is in two parts, General Duty and Specific Duty.

    The General Duty requires all public authorities to consider the need to:

  • eliminate unlawful discrimination, harassment, victimisation and other unlawful acts under the Equality Act;
  • advance equality of opportunity between different groups of people;
  • foster good relations between different groups of people; in carrying out all its activities.
  • The Specific Duty requires us to have equality and diversity objectives and publish certain information in relation to equality.
    Below is information published in relation to meeting the requirements of the Specific Duty.
