PLACE visit at the Royal Free hospital

Robert Sumerling, a member of our board recently went on a PLACE visit at the Royal Free hospital. He visited the Radiotherapy Clinic, Postnatal ward and Men’s renal ward where they looked at cleanliness and condition.

Our volunteers go to PLACE visits at local hospitals every year to provide the patient perspective on whether the healthcare environment provides privacy and dignity. Staff at the hospitals are positive and welcoming.

We presented at the Health and Wellbeing board

On Tuesday 13 March, our board member Sarah Cawthra gave a resident's presentation at the Health and Wellbeing Board meeting (where she represents us). She talked about how difficult it is for someone with several existing conditions to keep active and maintain a healthy weight.

Our board members live in Camden and often present at meetings in the local community. They also attend meetings with local organisations so that they can listen to what service users think of Camden’s Health and social care provision – where they’re doing well and where they can improve.

Message from Frances Hasler - Healthwatch Camden Director

We are launching our new five year strategic plan this month. We have existed since 2013 and in that time we have covered many topics.

We highlighted the experience of parents of disabled children. We commented on variation in GP services. We focused on equality, looking at the experience of disabled people and people from BMER communities.
