Welcome to Healthwatch Lancashire
We are an independent organisation set up to champion the views of patients and social care users in Lancashire, with the goal of making services better and improving health and wellbeing.
We want to hear about your views, needs and experiences to help Lancashire get the best possible health and care.
The Healthwatch network has done a fantastic job, in particular helping those who often struggle to be heard. This has influenced changes both big & small right across the country.
