Coronavirus Watch

The coronavirus is affecting work and lives everywhere. As a precaution, and following advice from Healthwatch England, we are currently suspending our current public engagement work planned for the next three weeks.

Just keeping you updated as to what is happening at Healthwatch Stockport.

Coronavirus Watch

We are offering support to local organisations and communities in terms of the following:

  • Helping to disseminate national and local official guidance on the latest developments about the Coronavirus
  • Practical support in keeping in contact with vulnerable people who may be self isolating [alone] via telephone or email.
  • Practical support in helping to distribute essential items out to vulnerable people in the community
  • We are working with the council and health services to be a point of coordination for a call out to [healthy] volunteers to support local communities in collaboration with other local organisations. this could be helping to drop off essential supplies to our vulnerable people in the community or making daily phone calls to people who are on their own etc..  
  • We have a growing list of Healthwatch Stockport members and others on standby willing to help where they can and we can mobilise quite quickly.

We appreciate things will change daily and will follow national and local official guidance, the more up to date we are and communicate with each other the better.
