The Work Programme Reports are a summary of the issues raised and/or work undertaken by Healthwatch Stockport and its members with regard health and social care in Stockport.
Healthwatch Stockport has the responsibility to tell agencies involved in the commissioning, provision and scrutiny of care services about the views of local people and produce reports and make recommendations about how local health and care services could or should be improved. The following reports outline completed Healthwatch Stockport activity.
The Healthwatch Stockport newsletter, Healthwatch News, is published every quarter and circulated to our membership, stakeholder and local services.
Healthwatch Stockport Question + Answer Sessions give you the opportunity to ask service providers and commissioners questions about the services in Stockport. The sessions are open to all members of the public, and Healthwatch Stockport members in particular are encouraged to attend.
A Quality Account is a report about the quality of services by an NHS healthcare provider. The reports are published annually by each provider, including the independent sector, and are available to the public. Quality Accounts are an important way for local NHS services to report on quality and show improvements in the services they deliver to local communities and stakeholders. The quality of the services is measured by looking at patient safety, the effectiveness of treatments that patients receive and patient feedback about the care provided.
The Healthwatch Stockport e-bulletin is an update sent monthly on the latest news from Healthwatch Stockport and local services. Also included in each e-bulletin is news from throughout the UK, including updates from other local Healthwatch organisations, Healthwatch England, and the latest news from the Government. The e-bulletin also includes links to consultations, events, meetings and surveys that may be of interest.
