Advisory Group Meeting Minutes April 2019

Each quarter we meet with our Advisory to decide which areas in health and social care we should focus on in Swindon. Read our meeting minutes from April 2019.

Our Advisory Group is made up of Healthwatch volunteers, Healthwatch staff and at least one representative from the Tenant’s Group at Sanford House. One of its main functions is to decide on our work priorities for the year.

This is usually based on what we have heard from members of the public who will have spoken to us at events or over the phone about their experiences of health and social care in Swindon. We look at themes which have emerged from those conversations that we've had to help us plan our work.
