HW Essex

Healthwatch Essex is an independent voice for the people of Essex. We gather and represent your views about health and care services in the county to help improve them.

Good or bad, we’d like to hear your views on the care you receive in Essex. We undertake high-quality academic research and public engagement to uncover your lived experience of services.

We also help people to find out about, access and navigate health and social care services through our Information Service.  You can share your experience or ask questions by calling us on 0300 500 1895. 

Would you like to get involved?

Our volunteers, known as Ambassadors, are our ‘eyes and ears’ in communities across Essex. If you’d like to help us gather people's lived experience of services, sign up to become an Ambassador.

If you’d like regular updates about our work and how you can get involved, join us as a member.
