PEOPLE who access health and social care support are being asked for their views on a new service being launched – to represent their views.
HealthWatch for Lincolnshire will give people the chance to make comments about the services they have experienced or report concerns about the quality of health and social care to HealthWatch England which can recommend the Care Quality Commission to take action. It can also signpost people to advocacy services.
The new service will launch in April, 2013, and will replace Lincolnshire’s Local Network Service (LINk).
