Community groups in Lancashire are being given the chance to have their say

Healthwatch Lancashire is speaking to community groups across Lancashire to give more people the opportunity to say – “I’ve Had My Say” 

Volunteers

The Healthwatch Lancashire team is reaching into communities to find out what really matters to people by launching a programme of ‘Care Circle’ events, which are a unique approach to gathering feedback on health and social care services from people in Lancashire. 

Healthwatch Lancashire is looking for those who manage community groups to express an interest in the ‘Care Circle’ events so that members of the group are able to share their views and experiences.

Community group organisers can request a visit from the Healthwatch Lancashire team by calling 0300 303 8811 or by clicking here.

An increasing number of people in Lancashire have been able to reveal “I’ve Had My Say” after more than 5,000 pieces of feedback or responses to research projects have been received so far in 2015.

Healthwatch Lancashire uses the information people share about services such as hospitals, GP practices, dentists, health centres, residential care homes and pharmacies to celebrate when people say they are performing well and to challenge when they need to improve.
