Thank you to everyone who completed our survey in February that asked you about your learning needs. We had responses from 191 people from 78 local Healthwatch.

The key areas where most people wanted support were:

  • Engagement techniques
  • Showing impact
  • Understanding the health and social care landscape

Have you tried our e-learning modules?

We have also created e-learning modules for staff and volunteers to do in their own time. All take no more than an hour to complete and you do not need to complete it all at once.

In addition to those listed below, we will soon be publishing new modules for Board Members.

  • Introduction to Healthwatch for new staff and volunteers 

  • Induction for Lead Officers 

  • Online engagement techniques 

  • Engaging people who are not online
