Local Healthwatch Scheme

Home » Latest News » Local Healthwatch Scheme

Local Healthwatch, the new consumer champion for publicly-funded health and social care services is to be launched by Cheshire East Council — and residents are being given the chance to guide how it is set up.

It will provide information and advice to the public, monitor and listen to people's views on health and social care and influence the way services are provided in the future.

A public consultation is now being held to help ensure that Local Healthwatch can do this in the best way for Cheshire East once the initiative launches in April 2013.

The consultation, which runs until July 31, focuses on discovering the best way to structure Local Healthwatch in Cheshire East.

Local events planned include:


  • Thursday, June 28 — Crewe Alexandra FC (2pm)

  • Thursday, July 12 — Nantwich (venue to be arranged)


Questionnaires will be available at these events and an online survey is available at:www.cheshireeast.gov.uk/consultations
