Healthwatch Rochdale Management

Their sole purpose is to understand the needs, experiences and concerns of people who use health and social care services and where needed speak out on their behalf.

Healthwatch focus on ensuring that people’s worries and concerns about current services are addressed, also working to get services right for the future. Healthwatch Rochdale certainly put people’s views before everything else - especially those who find it hardest to be heard.

Healthwatch Rochdale are a fully inclusive organisation and are here to meet the needs of all residents in the Rochdale Borough. As such we are proud to lead the way in becoming the first Healthwatch to become Homeless Friendly and encourage other Healthwatch and local organisations to sign up and help remove the barriers that homeless people face
— Kate Jones, Healthwatch Rochdale Chief Executive Officer
It’s important that we form positive partnerships with other organisations that champion the right of some of our most vulnerable people, we are looking forward to developing this partnership over the coming months
— Dr Zahid Chauha, Homeless Friendly founder
