New Healthwatch arrangements


From 1 April 2018, there will be a new Healthwatch arrangement for Leicestershire and Leicester City. The new provider is Engaging Communities Staffordshire (ECS) and they will be picking up the reins from the start of April.

The current Healthwatch Leicestershire representative positions will end on 31 March 2018 when the contract held by Voluntary Action LeicesterShire (VAL) comes to an end.

We would like to thank all of our representatives, Enter & View Authorised representatives and other volunteers who have supported our work since 2013 to date.

We will be publishing our Annual Report 2017-18 shortly and we will make it available to all stakeholders and upload onto our website.

Healthwatch Leicestershire and VAL is proud to have set up and provided an informed voice on behalf of patients and the public on health and social care for the County over the past 5 years and helping to improve services for local people.

Contact details for ECS

ECS will be offering memberships and volunteering opportunities to all members of the community. If you are interested, please contact ECS on 01785 224819 or email aileen.farrer@ecstaffs.co.uk
