Details of consultation
Every local authority in England has a duty to put in place a local Healthwatch – an independent organisation which listens to people’s views and shares them with those who have the power to make local services better. Across Reading and Wokingham, local Healthwatches support people to get the best from services such as hospitals, pharmacies, social care, GP and dentistry services. They work with those who provide these services and those who plan and buy them.
We are seeking views from people who use health and social care services and other stakeholders to understand the likely impact of commissioning a single Local Healthwatch for Reading and Wokingham. The consultation is being conducted by Reading Borough Council on behalf of both councils involved
