Find out how Healthwatch Central Bedfordshire can help you by watching this video
Our aim is to improve health and social care services in Central Bedfordshire.
To 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!
Please help us by sharing your experiences of all or any of these services by clicking on the button below.
Tell us when things are going well and when they’re not, so we can do something about it.
We are all in an unknown situation, with advice and guidance changing daily. It is our individual responsibility to keep ourselves up to date with the latest guidance from the Department of Health and Social Care and NHS, which we endeavour to share on our Coronvirus (Covid-19) pages.
During this period of lockdown, some of our volunteers and members of the community have shared their experiences.

Just Ask in Lockdown
This is the time we would have been on the road for our outreach programme, ‘Just Ask 2020’. Talking to the community, providing information, advice and guidance about local social care, health, housing and additional services.
We still want to hear from you during lockdown:
