Ensure your voice is heard in the development of health and social services
Ensure that the voices of blind and partially sighted people are heard in the development of health and social services by getting involved in the new Healthwatch boards.
Stakeholders and the public are being asked to contribute to the development of the Healthwatch England membership regulations.
A national consumer champion
Healthwatch England will be a national consumer champion that enables the collective views of the people who use health and social care services to influence national policy, advice and guidance.
This consultation asks questions on the key issues in relation to the membership of Healthwatch England that the Department has heard from stakeholders.
These issues are:
- the number of the members
- suitability for membership
- the process for appointing members
- the period of time a member should be appointed.
The consultation on the regulations for Healthwatch England Membership will help ensure that the public have a strong national presence to represent their views and help drive up improvements across the NHS.
The deadline for comments is Friday 2 March.
