Healthwatch Leicester and Healthwatch Leicestershire

Voluntary Action LeicesterShire (VAL) has been appointed by Leicester City Council and Leicestershire County Council to provide local Healthwatch services from April 2023.

Healthwatch Leicester and Healthwatch Leicestershire (HWLL) is your local health and social care champion. From Belgrave to Belvoir and everywhere in between, we make sure NHS leaders and other decision makers hear your voice and use your feedback to improve care.

Gemma Barrow, Healthwatch Manager said:

“Over the last 10 years we have listened to the people of Leicester and Leicestershire to ensure their views on local health and care services are heard and acted upon. Despite many challenges we have continued to champion the voice of local people. We are looking forward to building on our successes with the support of VAL, working with the public, voluntary and community groups to be an effective and representative champion for local people.”
