The 2021/22 workplan has been developed by the Heathwatch Rochdale staff team following our recent public consultation and was approved at our last board meeting. We are looking forward to the implementation of this plan and want to thank all the local residents who took part in our consultation which helped us to set our priorities and shape this workplan
— Kate Jones, Chief Executive Officer, Healthwatch Rochdale
The last year has been incredibly tough for everyone but as an organisation we continued to make sure residents' voices are being heard. I am proud that Healthwatch Rochdale has still delivered despite the challenges we have all faced. For the next 12 months, our dedicated and hardworking team and volunteers will continue to work closely with residents and local health and care organisations and partners to make sure our borough gets the health and care services our borough deserves. "I am particularly looking forward to seeing Youthwatch develop as it's crucial young people are able to get involved in shaping health and care services
