Healthwatch Wolverhampton is the independent champion for local people’s voices in health and social care across the City. This service is delivered by Engaging Communities Staffordshire CIC (ECS), a Community Interest Company that also delivers six other Healthwatch contracts.
We aim to ensure that organisations work better together. We do this by putting local communities at the heart of making decisions about their care and by providing real insight and engagement solutions to our partners, and by giving the local community a very real and powerful voice to make change where needed.
