We are pleased to share with you the Healthwatch Rochdale work plan for 2019 - 2020 which will shape the direction of our efforts to provide residents of the Rochdale borough an opportunity to have their voices heard regarding Health and Social care services.
The priorities and the work plan have been agreed by the senior leadership team following a consultation exercise with the public, professionals, staff members and our volunteers to identify what matters to people of Rochdale the most. As an independent organisation, we feel this approach is important, to ensure an informed decision has been reached and is reflective of the views that have been shared with us.
The projects undertaken by Healthwatch Rochdale will build on our day-to-day activities. These include visiting health and social care services and engaging local people at events and in public spaces to gather their views. We will look to use the combined findings to provide insight for decision makers across the NHS and social care sector about the sorts of improvements people want to see.
