That is why Stockport CCG is committed to putting the voice of our patients and public at the heart of what we do.
Listening to patients and acting on their feedback when it comes to all our decision making and evaluation of health services, is critical in helping us to continually improve services. We need to make sure the health services meet the needs of the people who live here, which is why public and patient involvement is so important.
In our role as GPs, we listen to our patients every day and hear about your experiences of the services in our area. We will use this face-to-face opportunity to the maximum when developing and commissioning services.
As a CCG, we speak with patients and the public on a regular basis – both formally and informally. We use a variety of ways to talk to the communities we serve, making sure that everyone has the opportunity to take part. This may be through our Citizen Representation Panel, Patient Participation Groups, surveys and questionnaires or face-to-face consultations.
We would like to know your views on NHS services and health needs in Stockport so that we can continually improve local health services. To enable local people to easily feed in their views, we have an online survey system, Citizen Space.
