The champion for everyone who uses local health and social care services
Healthwatch helps to get your views heard in order to ensure that services are designed around the needs of people who use them. Healthwatch gathers what people say and uses this to help shape health and adult social care services.
Healthwatch Camden will also provide you with information about local health and care services and help when things go wrong. It can refer you to an independent person who can support you in making a complaint.
Please see www.healthwatchcamden.co.uk for more information, including how to contact them.
