Healthwatch Bexley was established in 2013 to act as the statutory, independent consumer champion for health and social care services in the borough. We’re here to listen to the voices of local people and to help them navigate the complex health and social care systems. Everything we say and do is informed by our connections with Bexley’s residents.
A key focus of Healthwatch Bexley is to understand the needs, experiences and concerns of people who use services so that we can speak out on their behalf in order to influence service provision. It is a priority to seek out and listen to disadvantaged groups who are seldom heard so that they are given a voice.
Engagement is fundamental to the way Healthwatch Bexley works and during the Coronavirus pandemic we have had to adapt. Finding new and creative methods of engagement is crucial and we want to focus on finding new ways of engagement to ensure we can deliver key messages from the community to stakeholders.
We aim to ensure that all those who plan and provide services in the borough listen to the voices and experiences of local people directly, or via Healthwatch Bexley, to shape high-quality services that meet individuals’ needs.
Each year Healthwatch Bexley undertakes an extensive programme of work, which aims to have a positive impact for individuals, communities and the wider system.
Healthwatch Bexley is hosted by Mind in Bexley.
The role of the Community Engagement and Outreach Coordinator is pivotal to the work of Healthwatch Bexley. You will be responsible for maintaining the profile of Healthwatch Bexley in the London Borough of Bexley in order to reach new audiences and build relationships with the local communities.
