Healthwatch Camden co-ordinated work by five local Healthwatch organisations, in Barnet, Camden, Enfield, Haringey and Islington to help local residents have a say in plans for urgent and emergency care in North London.
Local Healthwatch from the five boroughs organised surveys, focus groups and interviews to find out what local people think of existing services and to get their ideas on how to make services better. We sought out people who don’t always get heard, in particular people from minority communities, and people living in residential care. We spoke to patients and carers, young and old.
We helped local residents and service providers to share their ideas on improving services and work out some action plans. These plans are now being used as the guide to future work on urgent and emergency care.

The Camden and Islington NHS Trust is currently considering a proposal for the redevelopment of St Pancras Hospital. We know that changes to a service can be difficult for patients, carers and staff. Healthwatch Camden has been talking to people who use the in-patient service currently located at St Pancras to find out what the proposed changes will mean for them.

NHS organisations and councils across five boroughs (Barnet, Camden, Enfield, Haringey, Islington) are creating a big plan (called the Sustainability and Transformation Plan) to improve the way health and social care services work, so that people are helped to stay healthier, services are good quality and the NHS stays within in its budget. One part of the plan is looking at urgent and emergency care (when you need care the same day or straight away).
