Healthwatch Suffolk logoA new voice for communities in Suffolk.

Healthwatch Suffolk is local voices influencing and shaping local health and social care services. It finds out what you think about your services and then uses those views to shape and improve them because the best services are built around the needs and experiences of the people that use them. It will also provide information and signposting to help you navigate the health and social care system and understand what to do when things go wrong.

As a powerful and independent consumer champion, Healthwatch Suffolk has the strength of the law and the national influence of Healthwatch England behind it. The people who run and pay for health and care services must respond to its concerns explaining what action they will take, or why they are not taking action.
