On 8 January 2019, members of the Greater Manchester Older People’s Network came together to celebrate everything that the network had achieved so far and to set a campaigning agenda for the year ahead. Members of the network had the opportunity to listen to presentations from James Baldwin from Transport for Greater Manchester, Liz Jones from Macc, Wendy Cocks from Care and Repair and Pascale Robinson from Better Buses Manchester. A panel discussion was also held by Nigel Rose from Macc, with Pam Smith from Stockport council, Warren Heppolette from the Greater Manchester Health and Social Care Partnership, James Baldwin from Transport for Greater Manchester and Wendy Cocks from Care and Repair.
Launch of our Health and Social Care report
We also had the official launch of our new Health and Social Care report based on the GMOPN Health and Social Care event held in 2018.
