Healthwatch Croydon is the official ‘patient voice’ across the Borough for health and social care service users.
The Healthwatch Croydon Forum, meeting quarterly, advises on our priorities and associated work programmes.
You are invited to the next event which is about the NHS Sustainability and Transformation Plan (STP).
The health service in its current format is unsustainable, and ‘doing nothing is not an option’. As part of its ‘Five Year Forward View’ the NHS has drafted a range of proposals to make services more efficient and integrated, while at the same time, increasing quality. The proposals on primary and acute care will be considered at this event.
