Hammersmith and Fulham is a socio-economically and culturally diverse Borough with approximately 179,000 residents.
Health services in the Borough – including 31 GP practices, Hammersmith Hospital, Charing Cross Hospital and mental health services – are mainly commissioned by Hammersmith and Fulham Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) and NHS England.
Social care services are being commissioned by Hammersmith and Fulham Council.
Healthwatch Central West London works to identify key issues that are important to those that live or work in the borough. It uses this intelligence to engage, monitor and influence commissioners and providers to ensure that the patient voice is at the heart of service design and delivery.
A key part in this is the Healthwatch Hammersmith and Fulham Local Committee.
It’s members are active residents and representatives of organisations from the Borough. The Committee meets every two months to inform priorities, give feedback from patients, and discuss important issues of the health and social care sector. Mental health is the main priority that Healthwatch is working on during this period.
Hammersmith & Fulham Local Committee, in conjunction with North West London Collaboration of CCGs, have produced a simple, clear and profoundly important service signposting leaflet to simplify the lives of local people and to make accessing local care easier.
