Healthwatch Southwark - Get involved in health and social care

Get involved in health and social care

Healthwatch Southwark gives local people a better say in how local health and social care services meet the needs of their local community.

Healthwatch Southwark is delivered by Community Action Southwark (CAS) to:

  • ask local people what they think of local health and social care services and suggest improvements directly to the service providers
  • look into specific issues, make recommendations and get a response
  • ask for information and get answers in a specified amount of time
  • be able to carry out spot checks to see if services are working well (checks are carried out under safeguards)
  • refer issues to commissioners or local scrutiny bodies if it seems action is not being taken

Be part of Healthwatch Southwark

There are a number of benefits to becoming involved in Healthwatch Southwark. These include:

  • getting attention for neglected issues or ideas
  • influencing those who make decisions about new or existing services
  • helping the community speak with a stronger local voice
  • helping services provide better care

It's up to you how and when you get involved. You can comment on issues when contacted or you can get more involved by helping to raise awareness of an issue or by helping to find solutions, for example, by meeting providers or being part of a working group. Contact Healthwatch Southwark and find out more about its work:
