The aim of Healthwatch Hampshire is to give local people and communities a stronger voice to influence and challenge how health and social care services are provided in Hampshire .
How is Citizens Advice Fareham involved?
When clients visit us seeking advice on issues involving health or social care, our advisers will make them aware if their issue would be relevant to report to Healthwatch. If the individual is happy for their case to be reported our advisers will report the case.
