Healthwatch Hammersmith & Fulham is all about collecting and using local voices to influence the delivery and design of local health and social care services. Not just for people who use them now, but anyone who might need to in the future.
To have the biggest impact, we need to work closely with a range of groups to gather the views of local people and identify issues, and also to get those views heard.
In particular, we’ll be working with:
- local community and voluntary groups
- local health and social care professionals and commissioners
Local voluntary and community Groups
Are you a member of one of the hundreds of local voluntary and community sector groups or organisations in Hammersmith & Fulham? If so, we want to hear from you and we’d like you to get involved.
Voluntary and community organisations reach a large and varied proportion of the population. You are the experts of your communities and already know about the issues that matter to our citizens. Each one of your groups and organisations exists for a reason, and cares passionately about your local cause. We want to work with you so we can best champion the needs of your members and beneficiaries.
Through your networks, and our influence, we can change things for the better.
How can we help you
What makes local Healthwatch different is that we have the power in law to make sure your voice is heard. If your group or organisation has a concern related to health and social care, we can tell the people who are in a position to make a change.
Change takes time, but the first step is telling someone who can help. We are members of the Health and Wellbeing Board and the local Quality Surveillance Groups. Our work also feeds into the Joint Strategic Needs Assessment. We can make sure your voice is heard and draw attention to the health and social care issues that are important to the members of your group or organisation.
