Welcome to Healthwatch Central Bedfordshire

Find out how we can help you by watching this video

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!

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.
