Our Vision

Our vision is to ensure that the voice of the individual is heard and services are responsive to their needs; that everyone has the opportunity to have their say and understands how and when to access their local health and social care services.

The core purpose of local Healthwatch is to be the consumer champion for health and care service users (through section 221 activities set out in the 2007 Act). It should involve patients, service users and the public in shaping local health and care services; and raise awareness of their views and experiences in relation to those services amongst those in charge of services including commissioners and providers.
