Healthwatch is the independent champion for people who use health and social care services in Wandsworth. We’re here to make sure that those running services, and the Government, put people at the heart of care.
Our sole purpose is to understand the needs, experiences and concerns of people who use health and social care services and to speak out on their behalf. We focus on making sure that people’s worries and concerns about current services are addressed. We work to get services right for the future.
Our public events give local people an opportunity to hear about – and feedback on – health and social care topics that are of concern to them. We also promote excellent local NHS and community services that people might not know much about at our events.

Healthwatch Wandsworth Committee Meeting
This is the meeting of our Healthwatch Committee in public. This will be a meeting to go through a number of agenda items relating to the Healthwatch Committee’s role in governance of Healthwatch Wandsworth. This is not an event to discuss health and social care topics with the community (we hold other events to do this).
The Healthwatch Committee’s role is to support strategic decisions on the direction of Healthwatch Wandsworth by supporting staff and volunteers and contributing to:
- good governance and decision making
- strategic planning
- risk assessment and policy development
- monitoring performance.
The Committee sits within the Wandsworth Care Alliance (WCA) governance structure and is locally accountable so that WCA is able to meet its corporate responsibilities and contractual duties and act lawfully at all times.
The Healthwatch Committee has eight voting members, four are WCA Trustees (of whom one is Chair), and four members are elected from among the Healthwatch Wandsworth membership. Elected Committee members are elected every three years. View this page for more information about Committee members.
