Each local authority is covered by a Healthwatch, which is an independent organisation which uses the experiences that residents have of local health and social care to help shape local services. Local Healthwatch organisations receive support and guidance from Healthwatch England, which operates at a national level.
Healthwatch Ealing engages local people and ensures their voice is heard by influencing the planning, design and delivery of services, to improve quality, outcome and experience. It is a membership organisation and is open to anyone who is entitled to access health or adult social care services in Ealing.
They advise the Health and Wellbeing board, Overview and Scrutiny Committees, Secretary of State for Health, Monitor, the NHS Commissioning Board and London Borough of Ealing about their findings and report to Department of Health and the Council every year. They encourage dialogue between local people using care and health services and policy makers.
