The campaign by Ann Coffey MP to make child sexual abuse and exploitation a Public Health priority has taken a big step forward.
Ms Coffey raised the issue in the Commons following her recent report: ‘Real Voices – Child sexual exploitation in Greater Manchester’ – which recommended that child sexual exploitation should be declared a priority Public Health issue, like smoking, obesity, alcohol and drug use.
The number of people who go regularly to Church is declining year by year, although we all expect our local church to be available for christenings, weddings and funerals. It is often a struggle to keep often old buildings badly in need of repair in use. Every year churches close – another loss to those communities.
Stockport MP Ann Coffey has ensured that hundreds of her constituents have a voice in the Healthier Together consultation on the way healthcare services in Greater Manchester are delivered.
Ann met Dr Ranjit Gill, lead GP at Stockport Clinical Commissioning Group, to share some of the results of her own survey on the NHS, conducted across her constituency since last summer, which has received over 700 responses so far.
