YOUR VOICE COUNTS: Caroline Flint with Dorothy Head and Kay Kirk.
Said Caroline: “It was great to meet Dorothy and Kay helping to promote Healthwatch and encouraging people to tell their stories about their experience of health and social care.
“As an MP, I help many people who raise concerns about the NHS treatment or issues concerning social care that they or a relative have received; but I also receive letters from people expressing their thanks for the help and support they or a loved one received from the NHS and local services.
“I hope more people will tell their stories of health and social care treatment – the good things and the not so good. Your story could be anything from whether you find it easy to get a GP appointment or whether a family member had life-saving treatment. At Healthwatch they feed this back so that NHS and social care services, can be checked and improved. And it is important that health managers know when services are going well, first hand from patients.”
