Some people face more barriers than others when faced with the need to change lifestyles or behaviour.

The panel suggested that the new model of care should consider mental health more and ensure that this is brought into the neighbourhood plans. The panel requested to have more detail on the plans as they progress and to get involved in the individual workstreams.





There are a total of 16 members on the Citizens Representation Panel drawn from the CCG Patient Panel, Healthwatch, Stockport NHS Foundation Trust and Pennine Care NHS Trust governors, Local Councillors, GP Practice Patient Reference Groups, Voluntary sector and Carers.


The panel will be responsible for discussing and making recommendations on key elements of the design. They will encourage and support active participation in the engagement and consultation of Stockport Together, provide scrutiny of the activity to ensure that communities are being involved as partners in actively developing the proposals and that there has been enough time spent in actively explaining and building the case for change from the outset.
