News from Healthwatch:-

'Healthwatch Staffordshire is an independent consumer champion for health and social care services in Staffordshire, delivered by Engaging Communities.

Our job is to argue for the consumer interests of those using health and social care services across the county, and give local people an opportunity to speak out about their concerns and health care priorities.

The information people share will help improve local services for all! We can also signpost you to local services and give you information on what is available and offer a range of volunteer opportunities.

We also provide a free, confidential and independent health complaints advocacy service to support residents of Staffordshire make complaints about their NHS care and treatment.

From GP complaints, concerns about your dentist, delays getting appointments, problems with your clinical care at hospital, we can help with any complaint about the NHS.

Our specially trained advocates can support you to make your complaint, help you to get answers to questions and make a real difference to help improve local health services by highlighting where problems are.

You can talk to us free on 0800 161 5600.  Talk to us - Make your voice count.
