Healthwatch Staffordshire is the independent consumer champion for health and social care in your local area, delivered by Engaging Communities Staffordshire. Our job is to champion for the consumer interests of those using health and social care services across the county, and give local people an opportunity to speak out about their concerns and health care priorities. We can also signpost you to local services and give you information on what is available. If you want to learn more about who we are and what we do, watch the video below.

Everyone who uses health and social care services has the right to expect a high standard. Healthwatch can help your local services achieve these standards, but to do this we need your help. We need you to ‘Have Your Say’ about your experiences of health and social care services in Staffordshire. We constantly monitor and review our Experience Exchange feedback platform which records experience of local services. Your feedback provides essential information on how we can champion for your interests and of those using health and social care services across the county. If you wish to submit your own feedback, suggestion or comment visit our Experience Exchange site.
