Healthwatch Blackpool is part of a network of over 150 local Healthwatch across the country. We’re here to hear your experiences of using local health and social care services.

We are independent and recognise that it is often those closest to the process who are best placed to give useful feedback on the way services work and how they can be improved.

We provide the people of Blackpool with opportunities to share their views, we also provide an information and signposting service with the ultimate aim to promote health and care that works for you!

When we talk to young people about what they think of health or care, we sometimes use feedback to make reports and recommendations of how things can be better.
