Last year local people and businesses completed our survey and told us of their concerns about access to GP services.
As a result of your feedback, Healthwatch carried out work with local GPs to improve services. We continue to do that this year.
Please give us your feedback and constructive ideas - it really does make a difference. For example; when we looked into GP services, it became apparent that there was so much information on display in waiting rooms that patients didn’t know what was important for them to look at.
We are the consumer champion for health and social care services. We give the people and communities of Barking and Dagenham a stronger voice to influence and challenge how services are provided locally.
We believe that every voice counts when it comes to shaping services for today and improving them for the future.
