Description

The Royal Borough of Kingston upon Thames is seeking to re-commission its local Healthwatch Services. Local Healthwatch has a hugely valuable role to play in helping health and social care services in Kingston to be the very best they can. An effective Local Healthwatch will work collaboratively with the Kingston ‘family’ of partners, including statutory agencies and voluntary and community sector organisations to make a positive contribution to improving health and wellbeing outcomes for people in Kingston. Empowering and supporting children, young people, adults and communities to have their say through a range of innovative and inclusive engagement mechanisms will be at the centre of the Healthwatch role. The core business of Local Healthwatch is to be an independent consumer voice ensuring that the views of children, young people and adults influence improvements in health and social care. It will only be successful in achieving this if it is seen as a credible and professional organisation able to build highly effective and constructive relationships with commissioners, providers, service users, patients and wider partners including Healthwatch England.
