Healthwatch services – COVID-19 update

Healthwatch Hammersmith & Fulham is the patient champion which helps influence the design and delivery of local health and social care services. It is a statutory requirement for Local Authorities to commission a local Healthwatch service under the Health and Social Care Act 2012. From the 1st April 2020, Your Voice in Health and Social Care (YVHSC) became the provider for the service. 

Following the Government’s latest guidance regarding COVID-19 (https://www.gov.uk/government/topical-events/coronavirus-covid-19-uk-government-response), we have reviewed our engagement and working practices to ensure that we do not increase the risk of our staff, volunteers and community members who are elderly, pregnant or have underlying health conditions.  We are also ensuring that we do not place an additional burden on the NHS or social care services. 

Healthwatch Hammersmith & Fulham is currently providing reduced community engagement services due to COVID-19. However the service is running some virtual community engagement sessions and is here to offer signposting, information and guidance during this time. Please do not hesitate to contact us and we will endeavour to support you with any and all enquiries.
