Annual Report 2012/13
This is the first Annual Report from Healthwatch England, the national consumer champion for health and social care in England.
We present an overview of the current state of health and social care in England. We commissioned research including a survey and a face to face deliberative event, so we could understand what people really think about the care they receive.
We also explain the role of Healthwatch England and local Healthwatch and report on our activity for the first six months of our life, from 1 October 2012 to 31 March 2013.
