The theme of this year’s Healthwatch England conference was “Being Healthwatch”. Now that the Healthwatch network has been in place for two years, how do we fulfil our role? The answers are different for each local Healthwatch, because the context in which we work is different. For us in Camden, being Healthwatch means working in partnership with our large and diverse voluntary and community sector.
