About Healthwatch Hubs

In each town and village we are asking existing and new local community groups to sign up to become part of the Healthwatch Lincolnshire network to help give feedback about local health and social care services.

Each group will be asked to discuss and feed back to Healthwatch Lincolnshire (a minimum of 4 times per year) of what their member’s recent experiences have been concerning all health and social care services.

This format is much more informal and we hope will enable people to feel more comfortable with sharing their experiences, it also helps us reach many more people. The information from the network will then be part of the quarterly provider network meetings that Healthwatch Lincolnshire will be facilitating involving local health and care organisation. We feel this will enable you to get your voice heard much quicker and straight to the heart of the people that need to hear it.

Community Groups

If you already run a community group or are keen to set one up and become part of the Healthwatch Hub network, please feel free to email Oonagh Quinn to discuss this further.

Local Service Provider and Commissioner

We would also like to open up the opportunity to our hubs to be part of influencing more services.  By offering local commissioners and providers of health and care services the chance to network with local people through our Healthwatch Hubs, we will be inviting many people to share their experiences.  For instance, community health may wish to ask hub members specific questions about their views of community nurses or health visitors.

If you are a local service provider or commissioner please contact Nicola Tallent – email for more information.
