Top health concerns in survey
ACCESS to GP appointments is a top priority for Stockport residents according to watchdog Healthwatch Stockport.
The organisation spoke to people across the borough about what they want from health and social care services for a report published last week.
Nearly 40 per cent of people who responded said access to appointments, particularly with GPs, is the highest priority for them.
Twenty per cent valued good communication and information, while a further 20pc referred to the attitude of staff in their comments.
The research also found that many young lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people were concerned about the attitude of GPs to their sexuality and age.
Roy Oliver, from Healthwatch Stockport, said: “We hope that local service providers take the findings into account when planning future services.”
