Our Annual Report celebrates our successes raising the importance and value of people’s experiences in improving the quality of health care in Birmingham during the last year.
The report highlights how people’s views and experiences are key to improving health and social care services in Birmingham. It showcases the importance of providing patients and the public with independent and accessible ways to speak-up about their care, and reflects the essential role of Healthwatch Birmingham in supporting people to do this.
It explains how people’s views are being used to influence better outcomes and improvements for people using health and care services in Birmingham. This is by presenting information about the extensive work we have achieved throughout the past year through a range of case studies.
