Welcome to Healthwatch Leeds
We’re a group of 14-25 year old volunteers that work with YouthWatch Leeds.
We listen to the views of children and young people on how services like doctors, dentists and social workers could be made better for them.
What is Healthwatch Leeds?
Healthwatch Leeds is here to help you get the best out of your local health and care services. We bring your feedback to those who plan and deliver services in Leeds.
We provide an information and advice service to help people understand and access health and care services in the Leeds area. We also capture people’s experiences in order to help to improve local services. We produce reports that we share with providers and make recommendations which we follow up at a later date.
Advice & Information
Healthwatch Leeds provides an information service to help people understand and access health and care services in the Leeds area. We also capture people’s experiences in order to help to improve local services. Our trained staff can help you to:
- Find out about health and care services near to you
- How to access the support and advice you need
- Help you understand your options
- What to do if you have a concern or complaint
- Share feedback with us about services. This helps us see the bigger picture so that we can better influence changes in services.
Part of our role as your local Healthwatch is to act upon the information you provide to look at Health and Care services, to do this we produce reports.
The reports have recommendations for the providers of services based on your feedback.
There are lots of ways you can be involved with Healthwatch Leeds. We want volunteering to reflect your interests and your ideas about how we can help to improve health and social care systems in Leeds.
We will always do our best to make sure the opportunity fits with you.
Patient Voices Group
Healthwatch Leeds Chairs the Patient Voices Group (PVG). This group was set up by the Leeds Health and Wellbeing Board (LHWB).
This group brings together the 3rd sector and providers to improve the ways we engage with you and reduce repetition.
