Concerns about threats to HealthWatch

Healthwatch’s ability to be your voice on health and social care under threat.
Dear Friend of Healtwatch Oxfordshire

Oxfordshire County Council’s cuts options include a proposal to cut Healthwatch Oxfordshire’s funding by £100,000, or nearly 30%. The council cuts package, and the changes we know the NHS are going to have to make , will mean that major changes in health and social care services are inevitable in Oxforshire. We believe that now , more than ever before , commissioners and providers need the kind of independent , evidence based and objective feedback about the impact those changes are having on people’s care, that only Healthwatch can provide.
