Our aim is to improve health and social care services in Central Bedfordshire.

HW-ItStartsWithYou_LogoTo do this we need your feedback about local GP surgeries, hospitals, dentists, pharmacies, opticians, social care, emergency care and community based health teams. With this, we are able to inform, liaise, influence and, if necessary, challenge decisions and plans.

For all of this, we need your help!
