Our engagement team

At Manchester Health and Care Commissioning the role of our Engagement team is to bring the voice of our people from across Manchester into MHCC.

The team actively listens to and engages with members of the public, service users and communities to hear their experiences of health and care services across our city. We then what they say to inform and influence the commissioning (the planning and buying) process and decision making within our organisation.

The team also supports volunteers participating in our work and provide regular supervision and training opportunities to them.
