The Healthwach England committee has written to all local Healthwatch Chief Executives, Lead Officers and Chairs, as well as Chief Executives of local Healthwatch provider organisations to provide guidance in response to COVID-19. We have also sent this letter to local authority commissioners of local Healthwatch, Directors of Adult Services, Chief Executives and Leaders for their information.
What does the letter cover?
In their letter the Healthwatch England committee provides advice on:
