Healthwatch Stockport Hero - David Kirk
Healthwatch Stockport is an organisation that relies on its volunteers. We have hundreds of them and we couldn't do the work we do without them. They are our real life Super Heroes and they perform heroic duties every day. Some are retired, some are working but all find a bit of time to devote to helping Healthwatch Stockport to monitor, scrutinise and ultimately help to improve health and social care services for the people of Stockport.
Name: David Kirk
Favourite Superhero: I'd have to go with my grandson's favourite - Spiderman
Why do you volunteer for Healthwatch Stockport? Healthwatch is a powerful voice for health service consumers, supported in law. I want to help the organisation achieve its full potential in ensuring that Commissioners and health and social care providers, provide the very best services for the residents of Stockport. Personally I do this by representing Healthwatch at regular meetings with senior managers at the Clinical Commissioning Group and Stepping Hill hospital.
What areas of health and social care are you most interested in? Care of the elderly, both in primary and secondary care.
To learn a bit more about our heroes, visit #healthwatchstockporthero on Twitter or visit our Superhero Stand at Stepping Hill Hospital's Open Day on Saturday 9th July 10am-2pm and sign up to become a real life Stockport Super Hero!
