Healthwatch Worcestershire's Annual Conference - 24th June 2016
It was fantastic to see over 100 local people, representing voluntary organisations, community groups, patients and service users from across Worcestershire, attending our Annual Conference last week. During the Conference we presented our Annual Report for 2015/2016 and outlined the work that we have been doing to listen to the views of people who use services and to improve the quality of these services. If you would like to see a word version of our Annual Report please click here
The public were given the opportunity to vote on our business priorities for the next three years and to ask questions to a panel of local commissioners and providers from the NHS and Worcestershire County Council.
The presentation is available here.
