Healthwatch Shropshire has been set up to act as the county’s independent consumer champion for health and social care.  Our remit covers hospitals, GPs, pharmacists, opticians, community health services, residential care, mental health and children’s services.

Healthwatch Shropshire gathers information and opinions from patients, carers, service users and the wider public about health and social care services across Shropshire, then makes sure those views are used to improve services for all.

We also provide information and signposting services to support the people of Shropshire in making choices about health and social care services and how to access them.

Healthwatch Shropshire has a statutory authority to visit locations where health and social care services are being delivered for the people of Shropshire, observe what is happening, and report on its findings.  We are keen to hear from anybody who is interested in volunteering with us to be trained as a visitor but we also have other volunteering opportunities in the form of community champions and specialist leads.

Individuals and organisations can become associate members of Healthwatch Shropshire.  Benefits include receiving the Healthwatch Shropshire newsletter, being kept up to date on local health and care issues, participating in events, and nominating individuals to sit on the Board.
