Objectives

Healthwatch Slough is the only independent Consumer Champion for health and social care in Slough. We listen to peoples' views, experiences and ideas about health and care in order to make services better.  Healthwatch gives people a powerful voice locally. Healthwatch Slough works to help local people get the best out of their local health and social care services. Whether it's improving them today or helping to shape them for tomorrow.

We also offer advice, information and signposting.

Activities

Healthwatch is all about local voices being able to influence the delivery and design of local services. Not just people who use them, but anyone who might need to in future.

We produce regular intelligence reports outlining what people are talking about. We represent the views of people who use services, carers and the public at various meetings and committees including Slough Wellbeing board.

We report concerns about the quality of health care to Healthwatch England, which can then recommend that the Care Quality Commission take action
