Local Healthwatch is all about local voices being able to influence the delivery and design of local services and getting out into the community to listen to local people’s experiences of their health and social care services. These views will then be fed back to local services to shape and improve them.
To do this we need your help. By becoming a volunteer for Healthwatch you will be able to help us reach more people and help your community shape its health and social care services.
