Healthwatch volunteer talking to group of people

We are the independent local champion for Coventry people for health and social care services.

People’s views come first – especially those who find it hardest to be heard:

  • We listen to what you think about NHS and social care services and tell those who plan and run services what people say works and what should be changed.
  • We answer your questions about local health and social care services through our Information Service




How we work

We identify what matters the most to local people by:

  • Going out visiting places in the community and working with other organisations
  • Running surveys and discussion groups
  • Listening to the stories and  feedback people give
  • Visiting NHS and care services to see how they work
