Showcasing the work of Healthwatch Doncaster

Healthwatch Doncaster's work on care home conversations was praised in the report:

"There is an effective Healthwatch in place which has positive relationships with the Council and the NHS. A particular example of this was the relationship with commissioning staff which has enabled the “Care Home Conversation” Project that Healthwatch has undertaken, with residents in care homes. Healthwatch would like to extend this approach so that the public in general can speak about their day to day experiences with Healthwatch as they would to their friends.”
