Healthwatch staff member talking to group of people

Your health and social care champion

Healthwatch Sheffield is your local health and social care champion. From Stocksbridge to Mosborough and everywhere in between, we make sure NHS leaders and other decision makers hear your voice and use your feedback to improve care.

How we can help you

If you've recently visited your GP, hospital, or used any health and social care services in Sheffield we want to hear from you. Whether you've had a good or bad experience, we can use your feedback to improve services for everyone and we have the power to make NHS leaders and other care providers listen to what you have to say. We also offer information and advice to help you get the support you need. Our service is free, simple to use and can make a real difference to people in Sheffield and beyond.

How we work

We are independent and impartial. We are not part of the Council or NHS. We were set up by the Health and Social Care Act 2012 and are part of a network of over 150 local Healthwatch across the country. Our statutory duties outline the role we play in Sheffield. 

We are a small staff team supported by volunteers. We also work closely with our community partners and local strategic partners to ensure we make the biggest possible impact for local people.
