Healthwatch Dudley is one year old…

…and to celebrate we have launched a poster campaign featuring local people who have supported us during our first year!

Healthwatch Dudley poster & flyer

As your independent consumer champion for both health and social care in Dudley borough, we are listening to your views and experiences and sharing them with people who make key decisions about our health and wellbeing.

This means that if local people have got something to say about hospitals, care homes, doctors surgeries, opticians, dentists or any other health or social care service – good or bad, we will listen so that your views can be heard and taken into account.

We are hoping that our friends and partners will help us to spread the word about Healthwatch Dudley by displaying our posters and flyers. If you are able to help in any way, please let us know and we will arrange to get some publicity materials to you.

And if you would like to find out more about what we do, please give us a call on 03000 111 001, email hello@healthwatchdudley.co.uk, tweet us @HWDudley or send a request through our website www.healthwatchdudley.co.uk.  We would love to hear from you.

Extended versions of our posters featuring even more local people will soon be appearing on local buses, you can download our poster here and if you spot one when you’re out and about, please tweet or email us a picture and let us know what you think!

Finally, we would like to say a massive thank to our fantastic poster stars, Gurcharan, Julie, Maurice, Neil, Sharon, Rachel, Steve, Matt, Josh, Sandra, Emilia and Marva who gave their time to feature in our campaign.

Best wishes

Team Healthwatch

Share your experience of Dudley Group of Hospitals with CQC ahead of inspections

CQC LogoEngland’s Chief Inspector of Hospitals is inviting members of the public to tell his inspection panel what they think of the services provided by The Dudley Group NHS Foundation Trust.

Their views and experiences will help inspectors decide what to look at when they inspect the trust.

The trust is among the first to be inspected and given an overall rating under radical changes which have been introduced by the Care Quality Commission (CQC).  The formal inspection of The Dudley Group NHS Foundation Trust will start on 25 March 2014.

To ensure the views of patients and the local community are properly heard, the inspectors will be holding two listening events, both at 6.30pm on Tuesday 25 March.  The events will be held at Dudley Town Hall, Dudley and The Talbot Hotel in Stourbridge.
