Healthwatch Cheshire East is an independent consumer champion for health and care across Cheshire East, forming part of the national network of local Healthwatch across England. Our role is to make sure that those who run health and care services understand and act on what really matters to local people.
Healthwatch Cheshire East undertake continuous engagement activities with the public to hear about concerns and compliments regarding health and care services. The information we gather is then analysed so that we can identify and act upon trends and common themes by presenting our findings to decision makers in order to improve the services people use. We also share people’s views locally with Healthwatch England who make sure that the government put people at the heart of care nationally.
We want to hear about your views, needs and experiences to help Cheshire East get the best possible health and care. Share your views on our online Feedback Centre by visiting
One way you can get involved and share your views and experiences is by being a member of our Citizens Focus Panel.
The Citizens Focus Panel is designed to enable us to get feedback on particular topics from a set group of Cheshire residents on a regular basis. This would entail us sending you very short online surveys throughout the year, which you can complete on your computer, tablet or phone. So, if you have 5-10 minutes at home, on a coffee break or even on your commute, it is easier than ever to have your say on your local NHS and care services. You may also be invited to get involved in online events and consultations.
Every time we do a survey, we will report back to you on what our Citizens Focus Panel has told us, and how that is being fed in to those who provide and commission health and care services to improve the future experiences of people. We want to keep you fully informed on the difference you are making.
More information on the Citizens Focus Panel, and how you can become a member, is available on our website:
