Healthwatch Sheffield Annual Report 2019-20

Writing our Annual Report has given us the opportunity to look back over some of the work we were doing before Covid-19 disrupted life for everyone, as well as reflect on the early impact of the pandemic for local people.
Annual report cover -

We’ve worked on a huge range of topics this year, from access to primary care, Continuing Healthcare (CHC) assessments, and services for people with dementia. We’ve also played a role in sharing information about Covid-19 service changes with the public, and will continue to be involved in this work through the year to come.

Our highlights:

  • We were supported by 30 volunteers – between them they gave over 1000 hours of their time to help us hear from local people
  • 2915 people shared their health and social care story with us
  • Our Speak Up grants supported 11 community groups and charities to do engagement work in their communities
  • Our ‘Stories of Health’ photography exhibition helped us to celebrate people who use their own experiences of health to make care better for others
