Healthwatch Hackney contacts
Healthwatch Hackney is the independent body which enables local people to influence local health and adult social care services.
They work to improve the quality of local care services and to hold the people who run them to account.
They help local people to get involved in the planning and monitoring of these services and also obtain the views of local people about these services and produce reports and recommendations.
The people who provide local care services are required by law to respond to their reports and recommendations and to requests for information. They also have a special legal power to enter care facilities in order to see for themselves what is going on.
They work actively and collaboratively with Homerton Hospital to monitor its services and to recommend improvements in the quality and safety of those services.
Membership is open to individuals who are resident in Hackney or benefit from local care services (as users or carers) and to voluntary organisations with an interest in promoting effective care services in the borough. Their staff provide support and training for members.
If you would like to join Healthwatch Hackney in working to improve local health and adult social care services, or if you would simply like to know more about them, please get in touch using the contact details below.
