Healthwatch Tameside is the independent consumer champion for health and social care in Tameside.
We listen to local people, and gather information about their experiences of using health and social care services.
We use this information to talk to the people who arrange (commission) the services and the people who provide the services. We can influence changes which will make these services better for everyone. If we hear about good practice, we encourage this to be shared. If you tell us about something that could be improved, we will talk to the people in charge about this too.
Any information we are given will remain anonymous. We are careful to share ideas in a way which will not identify any individuals.
Social Care is the focus for these surveys. We want to find out what people in Tameside think about the care they have received during the past 12 months. This includes a range of social care - whether it be in your own home, in a residential care home, in a nursing home or temporary respite care.
We also want to find out about the experience of being a carer or relative of someone who needs help with daily living tasks.
If you, or anyone you know, has received any care, please help us to make a difference by completing one or more of our surveys.
