Healthwatch Wolverhampton

Closed 24 Jun 2021

Opened 31 Mar 2021

Overview

Healthwatch organisations are statutory, independent champions for people who use health and social care services. Each local authority is required by the Health and Social Care Act 2012 to ensure that an independent Healthwatch organisation operates within its area.

Healthwatch (Wolverhampton) is responsible for ensuring that local voices are heard and people’s views and experiences are used to improve existing services and to help shape future services. In addition, where concerns and problems in relation to services have been identified, Healthwatch (Wolverhampton) will inform the relevant people and ensure that action is taken to resolve these issues and prevent them from arising again.

Why we are consulting

The current Healthwatch (Wolverhampton) contract is due for renewal in April 2022. The City of Wolverhampton Council wishes to engage with local people including key partners in health and social care, service users and their families/carers in order to shape and enhance the new Healthwatch (Wolverhampton) provision.
