The organisation records people’s experiences of health and social care

Deputy mayor Harold Craske visited an event in Gravesend designed to gauge people’s opinions of local health and social care services.

Healthwatch Kent sent its Big Red Bus to the town on Monday (June 13) to raise awareness of the not-for-profit organisation and gather data that will be used to improve health and social care across the region.

As well as giving their opinions, people who attended had the chance to learn about Healthwatch Kent’s current projects, including their work with Darent Valley Hospital, and to vote for Healthwatch’s future priorities.

Chief executive Steve Inett said: “We’ve had a great morning in Gravesend and enjoyed a fantastic response from local people. We want more people to know who we are, and what we do, which is why it was brilliant to meet so many people in Gravesend today.

“Everything we heard from people about local services will be used to help improve services for other people. If you missed the bus, you can contact us anytime for free on 0808 801 0102.”
