Healthwatch Hackney directs almost 1500 local residents to help
Healthwatch Hackney helped 1,445 local residents to find health, support or wellbeing services during 2016/17.
Our signposting service helps people find the most appropriate services for them and advises residents on how to go about making complaints about poor NHS or social care services.
Most people received face-to-face advice from us and a majority were directed to community-based wellbeing services including smoking cessation and weight management.
We advised more than 100 people on how to make a complaint and directed many others to mental health, children’s and migrant support services. You can read our 2016/17 signposting report here.
