Healthwatch Slough awarded new contract

Slough Borough Council has awarded Healthwatch Slough a new 18 month contract to continue gathering people's views and experiences of health and social care services in Slough.

Healthwatch Slough is part of a national network of 148 independent local organisations set up by the government across England. The new contract began in October.

Colin Pill, Chair of Healthwatch Slough, said: “We are delighted to have been awarded the contract. Over the past four years, Healthwatch Slough has developed the service to reflect the unique needs and character of Slough and its people. This contract will allow us to build on the excellent work we have already done in the community to promote and capture patient views and ensure people are at the heart of our local health and social care services."

Alan Sinclair, the council’s director of adult social care, said: “It is vital that health and social care providers listen to the views and experiences of our service users so we improve and shape future services across Slough, ensuring they meet the needs of our local population. Healthwatch Slough is well placed to do this and we look forward to working with them as they champion the voices of patients and service users across the county."
