Healthwatch Rochdale has launched its 2018/19 Annual Report with its continued vision of being the ‘go-to’ organisation for all members of the public in the borough to talk about their experiences of health and social care.
The annual report provides highlights of the impact of Healthwatch Rochdale work with local communities, including those who are seldom heard.
Our Annual Report highlights our considerable achievements in 2018/19 and the creative and engaging projects we have delivered to give members of the public the opportunity to voice their views on local services. I would like to say a huge thank you to all the members of the public who shared their stories with us. During 2018/19 Healthwatch Rochdale has observed and experienced significant changes, challenges and developments within the boroughs health and social care services. There will be significant decisions that need to be made and we, as your local Healthwatch, firmly believe that there should be no decisions made without patient or service users’ needs being put first – meaning that local people are involved in deciding how, what and where services should and ought to be delivered.
