Our Gateshead

Healthwatch Gateshead

Healthwatch Gateshead
About us: 

Healthwatch Gateshead is here to make sure your views on health and social care services in the borough are heard.

Healthwatch was established in April 2013 to give users of health and social care services a powerful voice - both locally and nationally. We work with users of local NHS and social care services to hear about your experiences, identify any issues or problems and influence improvements.

What does Healthwatch Gateshead do?

  • We provide information about local services and signpost you to relevant services
  • We have the power to enter and view services
  • We produce reports and information that influence the way services are designed and delivered
  • We pass information and recommendations to Healthwatch England and the Care Quality Commission
  • We have a seat on the Gateshead Health and Wellbeing Board which means we can influence how services are set up and commissioned

How we can help
We're here to listen and to help you find the services you need. We can assist with complaints, where to go, who to complain to and who can support you if you need it.

Email info@healthwatchgateshead.co.uk, call free on 0808 801 038, tweet @HWGateshead​, or contact us via Facebook at gatesheadhealthwatch.

We can also visit groups to gather people's views on services. Please get in touch if this interests you.
