Need help making a complaint about health or social care in Camden
We know that it can be hard to know where to start when making a complaint.
Healthwatch/CAB online resources can help you work out what to do and how to get the most out of your complaint.
Following a 'mystery shop' we published a report, encouraging Camden GP surgeries to have ready available information, for patients wanting to find out about their GP complaint procedures; you can read the report and our reccommendations here.
Healthwatch Camden is here to help, so you can always talk to us if you need information or help during the complaints process itself, or for a complaint to be made on your behalf.
Healthwatch Camden launches first AGM and workshop
Our first Annual General Meeting & Workshop!
On Monday 24 November we held our first Annual General Meeting and workshop . We heard from local residents and organisations on how Healthwatch Camden can influence and shape health and social care services in Camden.
We’re pleased with the feedback from the ‘Making the system work for you,’ workshop. Delegates told us what they would like to see done at a local level to help them manage and communicate their needs. We aim to provide a summary of what was achieved at the AGM soon.
Let your voice be heard on health and social care in Camden by joining the discussion at our hashtag #healthwatchcamAGM
Specialist children’s services in Camden: experiences of local families
A new Healthwatch Camden report, published on 16th September 2014, finds that information, advice and access to services for children with special educational needs or disabilities in the borough of Camden can be “hit and miss”.
Camden Council has responded positively to all the recommendations made in the report. See the full report and recommendations, including the response from Camden.
