Healthwatch Stockton-on-Tees is an independent body steered by a board of volunteers, commissioned by the Local Authority and accountable to the public. We strive to work effectively with local health and social care providers,to ensure the needs and preferences of service users are at the heart of the delivery of health and social care services. We listen to the views and experiences of people who use health and social care services.
Healthwatch Stockton-on-Tees’ vision is to be a strong, independent and trusted voice for local people. By working together in partnership with other organisations, the community and voluntary sector, the local Clinical Commissioning Group, Public Health and the Local Authority, Healthwatch Stockton-on-Tees endeavours to ensure that the needs and preferences of service users are central to how services are planned and delivered.
