Healthwatch England

Healthwatch England was established as an effective, independent consumer champion for health and social care. It also provides a leadership and support role for the local Healthwatch network.

NHS England and Healthwatch England share a common goal of making sure that the interests of consumers are at the heart of everything we do.

In June 2015, NHS England and Healthwatch England signed a Memorandum of Understanding signalling our commitment to working together and challenging each other when necessary to support our shared purpose of improving health and wellbeing outcomes for consumers, including patients, carers, families and communities.
