Rochdale Health Alliance Offices

Rochdale Health Alliance

Rochdale Health Alliance (RHA) was established in 2016, by GP practices from across the Rochdale Borough.

Our Vision:

  • To work collaboratively with members, partners, and stakeholders to improve care and health outcomes for patients

  • To sustain the future of local Primary Care Practices

  • To be representative and supportive of all practices and lead the design and delivery of new ways of working - Ensuring local GP services are at the heart of the integrated system.  


Head Office

We have 31 member practices across Heywood, Middleton and Rochdale and have a dedicated team on hand to support practice needs.  Our dedicated team has expertise that can provide support and expertise in finance, HR, communications, project management and strategy, and our aim is to ensure we share our knowledge to help our members improve their resources.


RHA currently supports 6 Primary Care Networks with back-office support such as finance, recruitment, contracts, employment of ARRS staff, training and development as well as providing services such as the mass COVID vaccination programme for patients throughout 2021-2022.

Our Network Support Managers and Officers work collaboratively with each of our PCNs to understand their individual needs and create a bespoke level of support for them all.

Heywood, Middleton and Rochdale Primary Care Academy is an integral part of RHA and develops the primary care workforce, in order to facilitate the recruitment and retention of well-trained and motivated staff. 


RHA currently provides the following services which provide additional access to general practice appointments:

In Hours Same Day GP Appointments Service. 

GP Practices are under extreme pressure and appointments can be difficult to get due to this.  To try and support patients who after a triage at their own practice, can be booked into one of these appointments so that they are seen on the same day if clinically required.

Enhanced Access

RHA is commissioned by 5 Primary Care Networks to provide GP and other healthcare routine appointments outside of Practices core Hours.  These appointments are generally provided between 18:30 pm and 20:00 pm and Saturdays between 9 am and 17:00 pm

Sunday and Bank Holiday Service

RHA is commissioned to provide a service on Sundays and bank Holidays to provide GP and other healthcare appointments on these days between 08:00 and 16:00 on Sundays and Bank holidays.

Many changes, both national and local, have happened over the past 6 years and throughout all those changes RHA has adapted to ensure that the organisation is able to continue to grow and deliver on our commitments.
