Working to Improve Health and Social Care Services in Newham.
At CB Plus, we have a strong track record of empowering communities to improve the lives of individuals and families across London. Our commitment to health and social care services is demonstrated through our award-winning Healthwatch Newham contract.
Healthwatch Newham is an independent local health and social care organisation that ensures that service providers, including the NHS and the local authority, hear residents’ voices. It engages residents in decision-making processes that affect the services provided, ensuring their feedback is used to improve services in the area.
Healthwatch Newham’s Key Areas of Work for Transforming Health and Social Care:
We amplify the voices of a diverse group of residents by sharing their experiences and views on health and social care services. This helps service providers like the NHS and local authorities understand what needs improvement.
We empower individuals to make informed health and social care choices through advice and information while increasing access to services. By involving residents in decision-making, we ensure their feedback improves local services.
We advocate for residents’ feedback to be used by service providers to improve services in the area. We work to ensure that under-represented communities have a say in the monitoring, commissioning, and provision of local care services.
