Healthwatch Stockport criticises “Flawed” Healthier Together consultation process
Healthwatch Stockport has criticised the “flawed” Healthier Together consultation, raising concerns about the lack of information available for residents to make informed decisions. Healthwatch Stockport are concerned about the plans, which cover the transformation of primary care, social care and hospital services.
Chair of Healthwatch Stockport, Tony Stokes said, “Most people accept the reasons behind the consultation; current health and social costs are unsustainable and concentrating skills will achieve better results for complex cases. However, we strongly believe that the reasons behind the consultation have not been properly explained to the public to enable them to make informed decisions.”
