Healthwatch Rochdale invited local people to share their views on where they thought we should work over the next year. 54 people shared their views with us via a short online survey and GP and Community Health Services came out as the top two areas.

Other areas of work identified in the survey that Healthwatch Rochdale will be carrying out over the next twelve months are:

  • Development of the #TogetherRochdale Communications Group
  • Development of Healthwatch Rochdale’s Advisory Group
  • Enter and View
  • Youthwatch
  • Information, Advice & Signposting surgeries

As well as the above Healthwatch Rochdale will be launching a new online monthly forum, ‘Healthwatch Rochdale presents an audience with…’. The forum will include updates from guest speakers on various topics and services and include a question-and-answer session at the end. The forum will be part of Healthwatch Rochdale’s role of providing information to the public.

Our work priorities are chosen based on the feedback we have received over the previous twelve months and the results of our public consultation. Our priority areas are chosen this way to make sure we are working where the residents of Rochdale want us to work and that the changes we make to the health and social care system will be beneficial to them
