Citizens Representation Panel 12th March 2019

Closed 12 Mar 2019

Opened 11 Mar 2019


A core part of our work under Stockport Together is to involve the public in the planning, development and implementation of the design, and to help this we have set up a Citizens Representation Panel.

The panel forms part of the formal governance structure and two of its members sit on the Formal Stockport Together Executive Board, the group responsible for overseeing the proposed integration of health and social care.

Members on the panel are drawn from the Healthwatch, Stockport NHS Foundation Trust and Pennine Care NHS Trust governors, Local Councillors, GP Practice Patient Reference Groups, Voluntary sector and Carers and CCG Patient Panel, The membership is to ensure an even spread of knowledge and backgrounds rather than to be there to represent their own or organisations interests. The members elected a chair and are completing nominations for a vice chair to represent the group.

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.
