Welcome to Healthwatch Rutland
Healthwatch Rutland is the voice of the people of the county on all aspects of health and social care. Our aim to make sure your views on these crucial services are heard. Both health and social care services are under considerable strain and there is a constant flow of reviews, initiatives and service changes that impact on the people of Rutland. Over the months and years ahead our task is to listen to your concerns about these proposals and echo those to the decision makers in the NHS and Rutland County Council.
Throughout the year we hold regular roadshows, public Board meetings and other events to hear what you have to say. We also carry out specific reviews on topics that we know are a concern to people. These include maternity services, ambulance services and the mental health of young people. We also carry out inspections of GP and hospital services used by the people of Rutland, making recommendations for improvement and monitoring progress.
Healthwatch Rutland relies on the help and support of volunteers across all our activities and there are always opportunities for people to give as little or as much time as they can spare. You can register as a volunteer or find out more here.
You can sign up to receive regular news and information about all our activities and also leave comments about services in the county on-line.
If we are to ensure that the people of Rutland receive the best possible health and social care we need your help. The more people who contribute to our activities and the more people who tell us what their concerns are the stronger an advocate for change and improvement Healthwatch Rutland will be.
