Help us set our strategic priorities for Leicestershire
Come along to one of our consultation events and tell us about your experiences and issues on the health and social care services you receive.
Until the end of November 2013 Healthwatch Leicestershire (HWL) will be engaged in setting its priorities. These will be used so HWL can focus on the key concerns of your community about health and social care services, and ensure that the public has a voice in the planning and design of services.
Tell us about your experience of services such as:
• GPs and practices
• Mental health services
• Social care
• Community health services
• Carers services
• Children and young people’s services More »
We will use the information you give us to help identify five key local issues that matter to your community. These issues will be the focus of our work to improve health and social care services for people living in Leicestershire.
