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!

A fantastic £995.17 was raised to donate to Macmillan Cancer Support at our Quiz Night held on the 23rd February at Parkside Hall, Ampthill.
Healthwatch Central Bedfordshire held our annual Macmillan Mammoth Quiz, with 93 people attending in twelve teams of all ages.
The evening began with the ‘Heads and Tails’ game, a lucky table prize, and then followed the quiz, with questions set by The Oundle committee, a family team who write the questions for Macmillan Support, in memory of their wife and mother.
After eight rounds of questions and a fish and chip supper, the ‘Cost of Quizzing Crisis’, were the overall winners with a total of 86 points and were presented with bottles of wine and chocolates. The losing team, ‘Silsoe Sweeties’ with 64 points were presented with a wooden spoon and a bag of lemons!
