About this resource
In the run up to a national or local Government election, it is critical that all members of the Healthwatch network continue to act in a politically neutral way. This resource aims to give you the guidance you need to remain impartial during the pre-election period (previously known as ‘purdah’).
This resource includes:
- Important points for you, your board and operational team to consider when it comes to the pre-election period.
- The guidance covers publications, media and social media activity, as well as working in partnership.
- Information on how Healthwatch England will be operating during this period.
