  • Health Watch
    Healthwatch Camden is the independent body set up to champion the voice of people who use health and social care services. You may already know that we are part of a national network of local Healthwatch organisations, supported nationally by Healthwatch England. You can find out more about us on our website, www.healthwatchcamden.co.uk.

Our role is to promote and support involvement, to gather views about people’s experience of services and to give people information about services. To do this well, we need to be in touch with all the many different organisations in the borough that are representing patients, service users and the public. So we want to make good links with patient participation groups.
