Healthwatch North Yorkshire

Healthwatch is the new ‘go to’ organisation that will support everyone across North Yorkshire to:

  • Have a say in how health and social care services are provided
  • Find out about health and social care services
  • Make a formal complaint about NHS services

Healthwatch North Yorkshire has taken on the work of the Local Involvement Network (LINk). It will also:

  • Represent the views of people who use services, carers and the public on the Health and Wellbeing boards set up by local authorities
  • Provide a complaints advocacy service from 2013 to support people who make a complaint about services
  • Report concerns about the quality of health care to Healthwatch England, which can then recommend that the Care Quality Commission take action
