More than 100 people attended the Devolution Difference event on 9 October 2018.
The event was held to reflect on how health and social care in Stockport is changing for the better – helping local people live healthier, happier lives.
The borough was handed the power to begin making these improvements two years ago when Greater Manchester took control of the region’s £6bn health and social care budgets with the aim of transforming services.
To mark the anniversary the event showcased the positive changes that have happened in health and social care services in Stockport that are making a difference to the lives of local people.
Jon Rouse, the Chief Executive of Greater Manchester Health and Social Care Partnership delivered a key note speech and there was further insight into the transformation by leaders of NHS Stockport CCG, Stockport Council and Stockport NHS Foundation Trust.
The event was supported by over 25 local voluntary, charity and health and care organisations who formed a drop-in market place, allowing guests to find out more about how the changes will affect them and talk to staff in the services available in local communities.
