Blood Pressure Monitoring at Home
We are currently conducting a research project alongside Healthwatch England and four other local Healthwatches to understand people’s experiences of monitoring their blood pressure at home. If you live in Hammersmith & Fulham borough and currently monitor your blood pressure at home, please can you spare 10-15 min to fill in the survey here.
Mental Health Patient Experience Feedback
Healthwatch Hammersmith and Fulham is currently looking to hear about people’s experiences of mental health services within the Hammersmith & Fulham borough. If you or someone you care for have accessed mental health services within the last 12 months, please could you spare us 5-10 minutes of your time by filling our Mental Health Patient Experience form.
Or you can simply submit your contact details using the same form, and one of our patient experience volunteers will contact you.
Your feedback is very much appreciated and will help us to inform the local healthcare commissioners and service providers who have the power to change mental health services to better suit patient needs.
If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact the local Healthwatch team on firstname.lastname@example.org.

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 ourengagement 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 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.
Healthwatch Hammersmith & Fulham staff are working remotely but can be contacted via:
Phone: 020 3886 0386
