Geographical remit: 


Healthwatch Bradford and District is here to make sure local people get the best from health and social care services.

We listen to people’s experiences of health and social care services today, and we give them a voice on how they are designed for the future.

We’re a small, independent organisation - with a big job to do. We work across the whole district, covering all publicly funded health and social care services.

Everything we say and do is informed by our connections to the people and communities of Bradford District.

Healthwatch Bradford and District has strong relationships with decision makers in health and care; we know they take us seriously, value our independent insight, and act on what we say.


Healthwatch has been established in every local authority area in England since April 2013, and our functions are established by statutory guidance:

  • help people find the information they need to make choices and get the most from health and social care services;
  • listen to people’s views about their needs or experiences, and make sure these views are heard by those setting up and delivering services;
  • get local people involved in how health and social care services are planned and provided, leading to improvements for all;
  • produce reports and recommendations which influence the way services are designed and delivered at both a local and national level.
