Healthwatch Peterborough is your local health and social care champion. From Werrington to Hampton Vale and everywhere in between, we make sure NHS leaders and other decision makers hear your voice and use your feedback to improve care.

If you use GPs and hospitals, dentists, pharmacies, care homes or other support services in your area, we want to hear about your experiences.

We are independent and have the power to make sure NHS leaders and other decision makers listen to local feedback and improve standards of care.

We can also help you to find reliable and trustworthy information and advice.

How we work

We are here to listen to what you like about services and what you think could be improved. No matter how big or small the issue, we want to hear about it.

Where possible, we will let you know when changes are planned to services in our community and help you have a say. We will also encourage those in charge of local care to involve you when changes are being planned to services.

You can also speak to us to find information about health and social care services available locally.

We work together with Healthwatch Cambridgeshire as part of the same organisation, sharing the same staff team.

Our approach

People's views come first - especially those who find it hardest to be heard.

We champion what matters to you and work with others to find ideas that work. We are independent and committed to making the biggest difference to you. 

Our plans 

Our communities face big challenges. A growing number of people need help with long-term health conditions, whilst illnesses associated with unequal life chances and lifestyle are adding to pressures on services.

Our strategy sets out what we want to achieve over the next five years to make services work the best they can for local people.
