Healthwatch York wants to know what you know about them and the work that they do. They are currently running the Healthwatch York Awareness Survey 2018 so they can better represent your views on health and social care.

Healthwatch York aims to put you at the heart of health and social care services in the city. This survey looks at how much people in York know about their work, such as:

  • Their signposting, information and advice work, including guides to mental health and wellbeing and dementia support
  • Their reports, including their recent report on Access to Dentistry
  • Their Rate & Review website, where you can leave positive and negative feedback about all local health and care providers.

If you live, work or study in York then this survey is for you.

Catherine Scott, Healthwatch York Policy and Research Officer confirmed: “It’s really important for us to know what you think about Healthwatch York. This means we can better support and represent the people of York in the health and social care arena and focus on what matters most.”

Surveys should be completed and returned by Wednesday 2 May 2018. Additional copies are available at the Healthwatch York office.

The survey can also be completed by going to the website:

You can also complete a survey at one of the Healthwatch York stands across the city. You can find where Healthwatch York stands will be on the website: or by contacting the Healthwatch York team on 01904 621133.

The survey is anonymous. Healthwatch York will not publish any information that identifies you. Healthwatch York will use all the answers given to shape their plans.
