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.

We want to engage with seldom heard communities, those people who face barriers when trying to access health and social care services, which includes the D/deaf community. The aim of the project is to improve service provision by highlighting health and social care challenges, issues and concerns, specifically raised by local residents who are seldom heard.
