'Can you hear me?' - Care at Home report 

As part of Healthwatch Surrey's strategic 3-year priorities, we initiated our 'Care at Home' project to ask the question "Do care at home users have an effective voice?" Findings from the report have been shared with commissioners at Surrey County Council.

A copy of the report is available here.

Healthwatch Surrey volunteer receives award for 'outstanding' work

We are delighted to announce our volunteer Liz Sawyer has been recognised as highly commended in the 'Outstanding individuals who've made a difference' category at the 2019 Healthwatch Network Awards.

Liz has been helping us to champion improvements in sexual health services in Surrey and with Liz's help we will continue to monitor feedback and work with commissioners to drive improvements to services.

Liz says: "my involvement with sexual health services over the last 2 years has shown how Healthwatch can amplify patients' needs and experiences in a way which truly influences commissioners and service providers. And, as I volunteer with Healthwatch I can really make a difference to services I care passionately about."
