Stockport is a large borough, on the south-east outskirts of Manchester, first mentioned in official records in the 12th century. It has a rich architectural history and is home to hundreds of listed buildings and ancient monuments. It’s most famous landmarks are its iconic Viaduct, one of the best known in the UK that’s featured in many Lowry paintings, and its stunning art deco theatre, the Plaza.
The town of Stockport, the historic centre of the borough, has a thriving Produce Hall and Market Place surrounded by a wealth of independent shops and market traders, museums and a wide range of exciting eateries.
Whilst being just 10 minutes from the bustle of Manchester city centre by train, the borough offers a spacious, peaceful environment to live and work in that boasts gorgeous scenery amidst its numerous country parks, fourteen nature reserves and a hefty chunk of the Trans Pennine Trail.
NHS Stockport Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) is a group of GPs from every practice in Stockport with responsibility for designing and buying health services for the local population.
