Healthwatch Ealing

Healthwatch Ealing is the new independent consumer champion created to gather and represent the views of the public in Ealing. Healthwatch will play a role at national, regional and local level and will make sure that the views of the public and people who use services are taken into account.

Whether it's improving them today or helping to shape them for tomorrow. Healthwatch Ealing is all about local voices being able to influence the delivery and design of local services. Not just people who use them, but anyone who might need to in future.

Healthwatch Ealing is the new, independent consumer champion for health and social care in Ealing. Our job is to argue for the consumer interest of all those who use health and social care services.

How will we do this? Our starting point will always be real people - their experience, needs and wants. And we will base our work in solid evidence and intelligent analysis.

We will work with emerging Individuals and Organisations including charities to help build a local, regional and National picture of the trends and issues that matter most to the people.

We will be ambitious – our role is to say where change is most needed. But we will also be realistic – a critical friend with a pragmatic view.

We can use the evidence we gather to identify national trends and issues, and to influence national policy. We will advise the Health and Wellbeing board, Overview and Scrutiny Committees, Secretary of State for Health, Monitor, the NHS Commissioning Board and London Borough of Ealing about our findings and report to Department of Health and the Council every year.

We also have the power to ask the health and social care regulator, the Care Quality Commission, to take action.
