Healthwatch Hampshire are proud to support the Innovation Conference established by North East Hampshire and Farnham CCG.
In early 2017 Community Ambassador Valerie Fabry suggested that the community might be able to suggest small projects that had an innovative aspect to them and which could have a large impact on the health and wellbeing of local people. The CCG supported this proposal and invited groups and individuals from across North East Hampshire and Farnham to put forward projects that needed help to become reality or required a boost.
We were filming at the conference this year to highlight the impact it has on lacal communities. The film was shown at the CCG AGM in June 2018.

Maternity Matters - Report & response now published
The Local Maternity System is undergoing changes and we are working with local maternity services to gather feedback that will help us better understand how services can be improved to ensure women have an informed and empowered choice through their pregnancy and birth.
Wessex Voices (a collaboration between local Healthwatch organisations and NHS England) were asked to carry out this wide ranging survey to understand experiences of using maternity services.
We are now pleased to publishing the final report, recommendations and response. Please click here for more information.

Care at home report
Our work on Care at Home services is now availabe for public view.
Healthwatch worked with Hampshire County Council to get a survey to everyone in Hampshire who has care services at home. Approximately 6,000 surveys were sent out by post, and the survey could also be completed on the Healthwatch website. This report gives the findings from the survey and makes recommendations for improving services.
