To inform the development of HealthWatch, the CQC and Department of Health (DH) have jointly established the HealthWatch programme board and its advisory group.
The HealthWatch programme board provides strategic oversight and ensures readiness for the launch of both Local HealthWatch and HealthWatch England.
Minutes from the programme board meetings:
The HealthWatch advisory group provides expert guidance to the programme board so it can advise Ministers on the implementation of the Government’s proposals for HealthWatch. The group also works along DH and CQC to look at practical ways of ensuring the transition to HealthWatch runs smoothly.
Minutes from the advisory group meetings can be found on the CQC website.
