Healthwatch release new website to make it easier for you to have your say about the future of your local NHS

Healthwatch Lincolnshire has launched a new website for patients, carers and service users to have their say on health and social care in Lincolnshire.
Visitors to the site have the opportunity to share their experiences and influence change. The more people share their ideas, experiences and concerns about NHS and social care, the more services can understand what works, what doesn’t and what people want from care in the future.
People are increasingly turning to online tools to help take greater control of their own health and care. The new site shares many resources to help people find the information they need along with helpful tips and advice to get the best from their appointments.
“We want to hear from everyone that has visited health and care services in Lincolnshire” said Sarah Fletcher CEO of Healthwatch Lincolnshire, Sarah went on to say “Our new website is easy to use and we encourage you to use it and we welcome your feedback.”
