Health and Care in Westbury
Healthwatch Wiltshire presented a report with feedback from local people as a result of our engagement in the town during the summer of 2016, together with research and evidence of health and social care issues in Westbury.
The public meeting was held at The Laverton, Westbury on 8th September 2016.
Health and Care in Westbury Report
About the report:
This report is about the work which Healthwatch Wiltshire did in Westbury over a 3 month period in 2016. Healthwatch Wiltshire is an independent organisation which exists to support local people to speak up on health and care. We are part of a national network of 148 local Healthwatch. The national umbrella organisation is Healthwatch England.
We were approached by Westbury people who were concerned about whether the town has its fair and adequate share of health and care services. They asked us to arrange a public meeting so that local people could talk with those who buy and provide our health and care services (the commissioners and providers). Healthwatch Wiltshire agreed to do this but we thought that it would be of more value to local people if we did some additional work to support the public meeting.
