Health Watch


Health Watch Website

Local healthwatch is another important member of the health and wellbeing board that may be further behind in its development that other parts of the system.  Getting the involvement and engagement of patients and communities through Healthwatch is essential to getting health and wellbeing boards to function well.  There must be a commitment from all partners to ensuring the voices of communities are heard, in particular those who are most vulnerable and who may traditionally struggle to engage with mainstream health services.  In the meantime, local councils and their health partners can draw on the evidence and views of public and patient engagement groups that already exist in all areas.
