About this event

Good governance is incredibly important for all local Healthwatch.

In the recent learning needs survey you said that you would like more support for Chairs and board members in running an effective Healthwatch. We have refreshed our ‘Guide to running a Healthwatch’, and launched our Quality Framework, to give you the information and tools you need to lead a well-run, independent Healthwatch.

Who is this event for?

This event is for Healthwatch Chairs and board members, in stand-alone, multiple contract and hosted arrangements.

What will you learn?

This session will introduce you to the ‘Guide to running a Healthwatch’, including relevant legislation and statutory responsibilities, and the Quality Framework, which has been developed to help with your quality assurance.

We will discuss how you can use these resources to support your leadership, governance and contract monitoring arrangements. We will also cover what it means to represent Healthwatch and the key components of the Chair and board member roles as well as opportunities to share issues and challenges you face.

Who is running this event?

Gavin Macgregor, Head of Network Development at Healthwatch England
