Greater Manchester (GM) is one of the areas hardest hit by COVID-19. There are currently over 508,000 people waiting for planned hospital care (as of August 2022) and reducing the backlog continues to be a priority for the health and care system.

In October 2021, While You Wait [] launched to support people who are on the waiting list. The website is designed to provide people with information and advice, including things they can do to help manage their physical and mental health while they wait for their appointment or treatment.
