Healthwatch Redbridge (HWR) has continued to provide excellent public engagement services throughout this year. Their annual report is now available to view which provides detailed information on the papers they have published and other work they have carried out, particularly their review of cancer services and work on the NHS Long Term Plan. Early on in the year they were able to carry out visits, including ‘enter and views’. They were happy to support North East London Foundation Trust (NELFT) with their patient involvement in mental health initiatives; they have continued their well-established accessible information programme, completing the GP practice review and reporting on the Queen’s Hospital audit.
The latter part of the year saw them working with their local health partners to provide support during the Covid-19 pandemic. They joined forces with Redbridge Community Voluntary Services (RCVS) to provide up-to-date health information. They are also members of the local authority Covid Pandemic Committee which enables them to keep abreast of changing circumstances.
