We work with independent local health champion Healthwatch Hull to help people get the best out of the city’s health and social care services.
Healthwatch makes sure that local voices are able to influence the delivery and design of services and it has powers to:
- Enter and view health and care premises, including GP surgeries;
- Carry out thematic reviews of services and present formal reports to the CCG and health providers which require response within 20 working days.
A Healthwatch Hull representative is a member of the Hull Primary Care Commissioning Committee and is a member of the Communications and Engagement sub-group.
There is a memorandum of understanding between the CCG and Healthwatch Hull and you can find out more about Healthwatch Hull here
