Message from Healthwatch Camden Director – Frances Hasler

May 12, 2017

April signaled the start of a new work year for Healthwatch Camden. This will be our fifth year, so we are no longer the new kids on the block, we are an established part of the landscape in Camden. Yet nothing stays still, and we know we always have to work to stay relevant and to stay effective.

So we will be redoubling our work to reach more of Camden’s residents and to make sure that what we do is based on what is important to people who use Camden’s health and social care services.

NHS organisations and councils across the five boroughs are creating a big plan (called the Sustainability and Transformation Plan) to improve the way services fit together. The aim is to improve support for people at home so that fewer people need to use hospital services.
