The Healthwatch network heard from 341,000 people, carers and staff during the last year about what they think of health and social care services.

Across the country Healthwatch have been helping health and social care leaders to use people’s views to make positive changes – from helping GP practices in Crawley become more autism friendly, to making sure care homes in Middlesbrough are equipped to support people with dementia.


We have also produced Speak up in Easy Read and Large Print.
