Hackney sex worker report attracts national attention
Healthwatch England has praised our special report into the health and wellbeing of sex workers. The national patient champion body has shared our report with the entire Healthwatch network across England via its newsletter and social media. Our report, based on interviews with 22 sex workers, highlighted the barriers they face accessing health and care services and the support that makes a difference to these very vulnerable residents.
Healthwatch England deputy director Neil Tester tweeted: ‘Great work by Healthwatch Hackney, demonstrating core Healthwatch value: work with everyone, not just those who shout loudest.’
