Thank you to everyone who spoke to us about their experiences of health and social care services in Hammersmith & Fulham, Kensington & Chelsea, and Westminster this year.
Published today, our fifth annual report sets out what people think of current care and how we have helped services hear what works, what doesn’t and what local people want from care in the future.
As well as speaking to people who contact us to share their stories, we’ve also visited 5 local services to find out if they’re meeting people’s needs. The report published today outlines this work and what we have done to tell those in charge of local services about the improvements people would like to see.
Thanks to our volunteers
As ever, everything we do has been supported by our fantastic volunteers. Our volunteers are going out into communities to listen to people’s views and travelling far and wide to make sure that everybody has a chance to make their voice heard.

Christine Vigars, Chair of Healthwatch Central West London
“The purpose of Healthwatch is to listen to local people and make sure that their views and experiences are used to improve health and social care services.”
This year we’ve seen the incredible power people’s voices can have in helping make sure health and social care services meet our community’s needs.
If you have an experience you’d like to share – no matter how big or small – we want to hear about it.
