Local Healthwatch – the policy explained

To help explain recent amendments to the health and social care bill, the Department of Health has published a document to clarify and restate the government’s vision for local Healthwatch.

The document, which also describes the key policy ambitions for Healthwatch, is aimed at all those with an interest in local Healthwatch organisations across the NHS and social care, including local authorities, local involvement networks, emerging health and wellbeing boards and the voluntary and community sectors.
