Join our Local Committees

Do you believe that people should be at the heart of the way our health and care system is designed and delivered?


We're looking for new members of our Local Committees in Kensington & Chelsea and Westminster.


What is a local committee and why get involved?
Being a member of a local committee is a monthly commitment and will provide you with a regular opportunity to represent the views and experiences of the people that you're connected to in your community.

Local committees are a key aspect of our governance structure and ensure that Healthwatch represents the views and experiences of local people. They provide the link between local people, community members, and our board. The meetings also ensure that Healthwatch is responsive to local issues and that our work plan is co-produced.

At Healthwatch Central West London we have local committees that represent the boroughs we work in:

  • Kensington & Chelsea
  • Westminster


How does it work?
Members of each Committee are elected by general Healthwatch members and can have up to 16 elected members. Elections happen yearly if vacancies need filling and are organised to coincide with our Annual Meeting. If we receive more nominations than the places currently available, we will hold an election.
