Enter and View Visits
Members of the Enter and View team outside a local care home, prior to visiting the service
As an independent consumer champion, Healthwatch Islington is able to enter and view health and social care services. Any publicly funded service can be visited, such as care homes, hospitals, GPs and dentists.These visits can be agreed in advance with the service we are visiting, or can be unannounced spot checks.
Enter and View visits are carried out by trained Healthwatch volunteers. As well as speaking to people using the service, our volunteers observe how the service is delivered, and the general environment in which it takes place.
