People’s health and social care experiences – Healthwatch England

4th August 2023

As well as reporting to local health and care services about what we hear from people, we also forward these experiences to Healthwatch England to give them a better picture of what is happening across England.


In June 4,100 piecesĀ of public feedback were shared with Healthwatch England, who have reported on the following themes:

  • Six ways staff shortages are impacting patients
  • Why accessible healthcare information is so essential
  • How the cost of living is still affecting health
  • Understanding the higher use of urgent care services

Their June report is available on their website – June: Digging into people’s health and care stories | Healthwatch
