Welcome to your local healthwatch site.
Healthwatch England is an independent national champion for people who use health and social care services and we are here to find out what matters to people and help make sure their views shape the support they need.
We are your local Healthwatch, there is a Healthwatch in every area of England. Nationally and locally, here in Blackburn with Darwen, we have the power to make sure that those in charge of health and social care services hear people's voices. People's views come first - especially those who find it hardest to be heard.
As well as seeking the public's views ourselves, we also encourage health and social care services to involve people in decisions that affect them and how this could be improved, and we share these views with those with the power to make change happen.
Healthwatch also help people find the information they need about health and social care services in their area.
