Local HealthWatch Briefing Paper v.2

Everyone seemed to like my Local HealthWatch Briefing Paper which I scribbled in October last year, but a few things have changed since then. I wouldn’t want you all wandering around with an outdated briefing paper in your paw, so I’ve put together a brand new version which hopefully reflects what we know at the moment.

HealthWatch Briefing Paper V2


What to do with this information:

  • Gently pass it to your Local Authority Local HealthWatch Commissioner, who is probably crying at his/her desk;
  • Have a read and let me know what I’ve missed, and drop me an email to let me know!

    Many thanks Lucy, very informative. Plenty of unanswered questions, The issue of TUPE is likely to be a risk that volunteers will not want to inherit going back to 2008, If 3 years on from April 2013 will ‘existing hosts’/new providers want this liability? With LA’s forever reducing at their end the money from the LD &HR Grant from the DoH it would be a brave organisation that would tender? for such a LHW contract. We wait and see.

    Again many thanks
