On Tuesday 23 October, 6pm to 8pm we held our AGM and community discussion. Healthwatch Camden staff and board members were joined by local people at the Living Centre.
We wanted to hear local people’s views on outpatient referrals and appointments as well as air pollution. These two issues are a priority for us in the coming year. We hosted round tables and asked people how each issue affected them or someone they know.
We did this because local people can help us to improve health and social care provision by speaking to us. We give children, young people and adults a powerful voice locally. We also work in partnership with local service providers and community and voluntary groups to get the best out of health and social care services for our diverse Camden community.
We listened to and gathered lots of views and will be using them as part of our upcoming work on the two areas.
After the community discussion we held our board meeting in public where we presented our Trustees’ Annual Report and Accounts.
We want to thank all the local people who attended the event. Your voices are important in helping us to improve health care for all.
