Healthwatch England is the national consumer champion in health and care. We have significant statutory powers to ensure the voice of the consumer is strengthened and heard by those who commission, deliver and regulate health and care services.
Healthwatch England works across a broad spectrum that ranges from local organisations and specialist partners to national bodies and government ministeries.
We use evidence based on real experiences to highlight national issues and trends and raise these at the highest levels.
We actively seek views from all sections of the community, and have close ties with the many organisations that represent them, both at a local and national level.
