Stockport

In Stockport, we provide a range of mental health and specialist services that aim to keep you healthy from the day you are born through to the end of your life. 

We work in partnership with a range of other organisations to deliver many of our services to make sure your care is joined up. This supports our commitment to providing integrated services that ensure you can benefit from ‘whole person care’.

We are part of the Stockport Together partnership, which sees leaders from NHS Stockport Clinical Commissioning Group, Stockport Metropolitan Borough Council, NHS Stockport Foundation Trust and Pennine Care working together to develop an overall strategic plan for the borough to integrate and transform health and social care services.
