What's good and bad about local health care?
After Healthwatch Merton launched in July, you now have the opportunity to share your views about Merton's health and social care services to say where it's doing well and how it could improve.
Dave Curtis, Healthwatch Merton Manager, will ensure your voice reaches the ears of decision makers. He said: "Our role is to ensure that your voice gets heard – even when those voices have something difficult to say. We need you to influence the delivery and design of local services, whether that is improving health and social care services today or helping to shape them for tomorrow."
To have your say on health and social care services in Merton, visit their 'Your Say' page (www.healthwatchmerton.co.uk/content/your-say) and tell them about your experiences, what you think works well, how things could change and what can improve.
If they receive a number of concerns regarding the same issue, these can go to Service Providers, Commissioners of Services and also to Healthwatch England who can identify national trends.
Not only will Healthwatch Merton ensure your views are heard but they are also here to provide information and advice to the public on the health and social care services available to you. Make sure you visit their website for local and national news, events and general information about health and social care services in Merton www.healthwatchmerton.co.uk.
