How we help you

Healthwatch Salford is your health and social care champion. If you use GPs and hospitals, dentists, pharmacies, care homes or other support services, we want to hear about your experiences. As an independent statutory body, we have the power to make sure NHS leaders and other decision makers listen to your feedback and improve standards of care. We help people like you to have your say and get the information and advice you need.

 

 

The power of your feedback

We use your feedback to better understand the challenges facing the NHS and other care providers nationally, to make sure your experiences improve health and care services for everyone. We can also help you to get the information and advice you need to make the right decisions for you and to get the support you deserve.

It’s really important that you share your experiences – whether good or bad.If you’ve had a negative experience, it’s easy to think there’s no point in complaining, and that ‘nothing ever changes’. Remember, your feedback is helping to improve people’s lives. So if you need advice, or you’re ready to tell your story – we’re hear to listen.
