We're building a network of local people with experience of using health and care services. As a member of the network, we'll contact you from time to time to ask for your opinions on issues where your expertise is likely to be valuable.
We know that this has been a challenging year full of uncertainties, but it is more important than ever that you know how to access health services when you need them. This December 1st event will examine ways in which our access to services has changed. We will also have space to raise questions and share experiences.
During this pandemic it's more important than ever to have digital skills. We can give you the support and encouragement you need to build your confidence using your device. Our digital champions will show you how to get online and connect to friends, family and the services you need to stay healthy.
Last year 1,141 people accessed Healthwatch advice and information at our community events, or contacted us with questions about local support. 650 people shared their experiences of health and care. We published seven reports detailing the improvements that people would like to see.
NHS and social care services have had to change the way they are working in response to COVID-19. If you are not sure how to access the support you need Healthwatch is here for you. From maternity services to mental health support, we can help you find the care you need.
