Healthwatch can be powerful. If people support us, join us, work with us and take part we can gather a lot of evidence about what people's real experiences of services are. Then we can use that evidence to tell services about your experiences and hold them to account. We'll speak on your behalf, particularly on behalf of people who are least able to speak for themselves. We'll challenge poor practice and help turn it into good practice. So you can be involved in shaping local services according to what your community wants and needs. We have the strength of the law and the national influence of Healthwatch England behind us.
