Healthwatch Leeds is represented on the Leeds Health and Wellbeing Board, giving patients and communities a voice in decisions that affect them.
Healthwatch Leeds will feed back any views and concerns to Healthwatch England so that issues of national significance can also be raised at a national level. We have worked with Healthwatch Leeds to gather patient insight on local health services including a spot check on children’s accident and emergency, a survey on people’s experience of using urgent and emergency care and a regular inpatient survey at Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust.

We are one of a number of partners working with Healthwatch Leeds and other partners in the city to develop and deliver the Big Leeds Chat engagement.
The Big Leeds Chat is a targeted outreach approach, working with the voluntary and community sector, it is an opportunity to promote broaden our engagement to be more reflective of the population of Leeds.
