Who we are and what we do
We are the independent champion for people who use health and social care services. We’re here to make sure that those running services, put people at the heart of care.
Our sole purpose is to understand the needs, experiences and concerns of people who use health and social care services and to speak out on their behalf.
We focus on ensuring that people’s worries and concerns about current services are addressed.
We work to get services right for the future.
We plan and undertake research and evaluations in a number of different ways, from reports about what it is like to use a service to more detailed surveys looking at provision within the local area. Some of our work is done as part of our statutory activities but we are also available for commissioned activities. If you would like to discuss any potential opportunities please contact us
How we work
We are here to listen to what you like about services and what you think could be improved. No matter how big or small the issue, we want to hear about it.
Where possible, we will let you know when changes are planned to services in our community and help you have a say. We will also encourage those in charge of local care to involve you when changes are being planned to services.
You can also speak to us to find information about health and social care services available locally.
