As part of our community engagement Healthwatch Camden has stalls at local events in Camden. We’re particularly keen to engage with hard to reach groups, such as our BME community. To do that, this July we attended the Camden Mela which is organised by Kings Cross and Brunswick Neighbourhood Association.

We said that as part of our plans for this year, we would find out more about people’s experience of local dentistry services.
Healthwatch Camden is independent from the services local people use, and so represents an opportunity for local people voice their experiences to make sure that health and social care services really meet your needs.

2016 is our third anniversary. We published our third annual report, showing what we have achieved over the three years.
We’ve been out and about at events in the local community, we’ve gathered your feedback on health and social care services in Camden. We’ve listen to what you think matters and have set our priorities accordingly. Together we can create a better health and social care system for us all.

An NHS trust in the North East of England has just been rated as “Outstanding” by the Care Quality Commission (CQC). Being rated as outstanding is rare – just four trusts in the country have been given this rating so far. NHS trusts in Camden are good, and have some outstanding services, but none so far has been judged “outstanding” overall.

We know the massive role the voluntary sector plays in the provision of health and social care services. We’d like to work in partnership with organisations and individuals so that together we can benefit our community.
