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 want to find out what you think about us and your experience and understanding of Healthwatch Central Bedfordshire.
Please take just a few minutes to complete our survey and tell us what we did well and what we need to do better. This will help us to improve and develop the organisation to ensure that we continue to influence service delivery and design.
We carried out a snapshot survey at two recent JUST ASK events and on our website during April & May this year. We asked people ‘How satisfied are you with the NHS 111 service? and provided five ratings; Very Satisfied, Satisfied, Neither Satisfied or Dissatisfied, Dissatisfied.
We had a total of 132 responses. 59% of respondents were either Very Satisfied or Satisfied with service, 31% were Dissatisfied or Very Dissatisfied with the remaining 10% being Neither Satisfied or Dissatisfied with NHS 111.

Well Done Nicola!
One of our volunteers was nominated for the Outstanding Contribution Award at the brilliant Cheering Volunteering 2018 awards. Nicola Kidby, who provides tremendous help with our accounts, received a highly commended – Well Done Nicola! Unfortunately, Nicola was unable to attend the ceremony so our CEO, Diana Blackmun, collected it on her behalf.
We’re back on the road with ‘Just Ask’ 2018!
For our next event we will be attending Haynes Village 100 on Sunday 24th June between 11 – 5pm.
Come along and find out more about health, social care, housing and other services available in your area. And share your experiences of the health & social care services in your area.
We look forward to seeing you over the coming months.
