DescriptionHealthwatch is the new independent consumer champion for health and social care, which was created to gather and represent the views of the public. Healthwatch Wandsworth is the local instance of Healthwatch and is one of a network of 152 local Healthwatch.

It aims to help people get the best out of their local health and social care services and provide a powerful voice for local people. Healthwatch Wandsworth is all about local voices being able to influence the design and delivery of local services. Not just people who use them, but anyone who might need to in future.

From April 2013 Healthwatch Wandsworth has taken on the work of the Wandsworth Local Involvement Network (LINk) and will also:

- Represent the views of people who use services, carers and the public on the Health and Wellbeing board
- Provide a health and social care information and signposting service to support people who make a complaint about services
- Report concerns about the quality of health care to Healthwatch England, which can then recommend that the Care Quality Commission take action
