Healthwatch Walsall Engagement
The aim of Healthwatch Walsall is to give citizens and communities a stronger voice to influence and challenge how health and social care services are provided within their locality. Local Healthwatch provides, or signposts, people to information to help them make choices about health and care services.
Healthwatch is about both obtaining views and experiences about health and social care from the public and sharing information we have gathered about these services with the public. We do this by engaging with Walsall communities and especially with those whose voices are seldom heard.
Engagement can be anything from having conversations with people about their experiences of using services, to surveys, consultations, and involvement in service redesign.
We undertake engagement through our own staffing resources and also through commissioned engagement using other resources.
