Healthwatch is a local and national champion for health and social care services.

Every area of England must have a local Healthwatch. They are supported by Healthwatch England.

Your local Healthwatch works in the community to gather views and experiences on what’s good about local health and social care and what needs improving.

They take these views to the people in charge of services so that they can shape services and make them better.

We currently run Healthwatch West Berkshire and Healthwatch Portsmouth, more information can be found at: 

If you don’t live in these areas, you can find out who provides Healthwatch where you live, by calling Healthwatch England on 03000 683 000 or using the search facility on their website
