Southampton Healthy Living supports the aims of Healthwatch Southampton.
Healthwatch Southampton is your voice in improving health and social care. Established in 2013, we have been working hard to improve patient and public voice and ensure services are listening and responding to our needs and ideas for improvement.
Healthwatch Southampton have three main aims:
- To be an independent, influential and effective voice for the public
- To provide an information, advice and signposting service
- To provide independent health (NHS) complaints advocacy
Healthwatch Southampton is made up of individuals and community groups who work together to improve local services. We have a membership which is open to any interested person or group to join. Members are kept up-to-date with our activities and opportunities to get involved and elect the public members of the Healthwatch Southampton Strategic Group which steers our work.
Healthwatch Southampton relies on your views and experiences of health and social care services. We actively seek these in many ways – through surveys, community engagement and our online feedback centre. With this information we can then seek change either directly for individuals or for affected groups. We are recognised by health and social care services and have a track-record in getting change and improvement.
