Healthwatch Gloucestershire does this by having a visible local presence out in the six districts of the county on a regular basis, listening to your views and experiences of health and social care and sharing them with the people who plan and deliver those services locally. We will also pass your views onto the Care Quality Commission as regulator and Healthwatch England, who will use them to identify regional and national issues and trends. In addition, we have built upon the legacy of the GUiDE Information service to provide or signpost people to information, advice and Independent Health Complaints Advocacy, to help you make informed choices about health and care services or raise concerns/complain about your experiences.
Your voice really does count and can change health and social care for the better. Join us and make a difference today.
