Four improvements you can expect to see in the coming months

Over the coming months we are doing a significant amount of work to improve the tools we use to share information across the Healthwatch network.

Here is more information about how we are making it easier to collaborate and share information across the network.

1. Search for local Healthwatch reports

We’ve built a tool that aims to help people search and find what people are telling local Healthwatch. Please test it and tell us what you think.

2. Connect and network with colleagues

Facebook Workplace is our new online community for network staff, volunteers and board members to ask questions, share resources and work with one another.

We have been gathering the information we need to get colleagues set up on Facebook Workplace and we’re working towards launching this in February.

Yammer will then be shut down by 31 March 2019.

3. Find resources and training

We have developed a section on our website for Healthwatch staff, volunteers and board members to find the information they need.

Here you’ll be able to keep up-to-date with network news, events and training opportunities and find guidance to help you in your role.

The Healthwatch Hub will then be shut down by the 31 March 2019.

4. Access and create branded editable resources

We’re making it easier for you to access the Communications Centre and enable you to make the most of the resources available.

When we remove the Healthwatch Hub, we will replace your individual logins to the Communications Centre with a generic login per local Healthwatch.

We will also then link to the Communications Centre from the new staff section of the website.

We will be in touch with people who currently have an account with more information on the details of what will be changing and any action that you need to take in due course.
