Healthwatch East Riding of Yorkshire Annual Report 2017/18
Healthwatch East Riding of Yorkshire have great pleasure in publishing our Annual Report for the period April 2017 to March 2018. The report highlights some of the work we have been doing in this, our fifth year of operation. It has been our busiest year yet and we have achieved a great deal.
Across the county Healthwatch East Riding of Yorkshire (HWERY) have been helping health and social care services to incorporate people’s views to make positive changes – from helping homeless people gain access to GP practices, to making sure mental health services are making more efforts to support working age men and sharing some of the best practice of residential care homes in the East Riding.
We could not have done so without the support of our partners and we would like to take this opportunity to thank them all for working with us over the past year.
Some of the highlights include
• 4000 people engaged
• 40+ Enter & View Visits
• Reports that highlight the public voice
• Travelling across the East Riding to hear everybody’s stories
Matthew Fawcett, Delivery Manager of Healthwatch East Riding of Yorkshire said
“This year has been one of our best years for Healthwatch. We have made some positive recommendations to hopefully drive improvement for the public who use local services. The report reflects the hard work by the Healthwatch staff team and our brilliant volunteers throughout the year. Healthwatch will continue to grow and get better every year and challenge health and social care services to improve”
