Healthwatch England has responded to a government-backed review into the NHS hospital complaints system which calls for significant changes in how the NHS handles complaints and deals with problems with patient safety.
Healthwatch Leicester have now teamed up with Healthwatch Leicestershire and Healthwatch Rutland to look at the impact of the Clwyd-Hart review on Healthwatch locally and on the NHS trusts in the area.
Healthwatch Leicester members are invited to a half day event on Tuesday 3 December to help plan how the NHS and social care will face the challenges of the future. The event will be held from 1-4pm at Braunstone Leisure Centre, 2 Hamelin Road, Leicester, LE3 1JN.
Leicester City Council (LCC) and Leicester City Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) have responded separately to a letter from Healthwatch Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland Chairs about concerns with Leicester Royal Infirmary A&E.
