To empower people and communities to improve health and social care services together

The year ahead


On Wednesday 7th June the Healthwatch Board members and staff got together to discuss the year ahead and to agree the work plan for 2017/2018.

We used the feedback we have received whilst out and about at various information stands, groups and meetings, from patients of health services and users of social care services in Sunderland and it was agreed that we will work on:

  • Equipment Services
  • Current good practice around tackling the shortage of GP appointments
  • Sustainability & Transformation Plan (STP)
  • Reasonable adjustments

We are looking forward to working in these areas, to enable the voices of the people of Sunderland to be heard, to influence change and improve the services you use!

The work around Equipment Services will be starting soon and we will be pulling together a group of people with expertise or an interest in this area to support us.

If you would like to get involved, please contact us.
