Transforming Stockport's Health and Social Care services

Article for Healthwatch newsletter - June

Over the next five years demand for Health and Social Care in Stockport is set to rise at a faster pace than that of the budget provided. This will leave a gap in funding.

To address this, and to continue to improve the quality of care provided, Stockport's Health and Social Care organisations are working together to change the way services are delivered.

The group, working collectively under the name Stockport Together, comprises four of the main Health and Social Care providers working alongside GPs across Stockport: Stockport NHS Foundation Trust, NHS Stockport Clinical Commissioning Group, Pennine Care NHS Foundation Trust and Stockport Metropolitan Borough Council.

In recent months Stockport Together has been working hard to design and implement plans that will help deliver a major transformation programme, designed to improve the way in which Health and Social Care is provided across Stockport. Now we need you to get involved to help us make the changes that will be best for everyone within the community.

Engagement events will be held throughout Stockport over the coming months, but if you'd like to register your interest to take part, please visit and save your details. You can also register to take part in any surveys, focus groups or simply to receive information about the progress of the work. Healthwatch will also be involved in the design of the new system and will have a seat on the 'Design Authority' which is being set up. Alternatively, if you have any questions about any of the transformation work, do contact the Stockport Together team on
