Services

Your Voice in Health and Social Care (YVHSC) is an independent organisation that gives people a voice to improve and shape services and help them get the best out of health and social care services. In order to support these communities, current community issues are identified to find alternative pathways for the effective use of health and social care services.

YVHSC signpost patients to various organisations/groups. This includes signposting and liaising with organisations about patient’s concerns and queries. 

YVHSC holds the contracts for running the Healthwatch services for HealthWatch Hounslow (HWH), Healthwatch Ealing (HWE), Healthwatch Waltham Forest (HWWF) and Healthwatch Bromley (HWB). HW staff members and volunteers speak to local people about their experiences of health and social care services. YVHSC run HW’s have a large pool of volunteers who visit various health and social care settings and public places to speak to patients. Comments and issues are raised with the commissioners of health and social care services.

YVHSC works alongside a number of providers and has carried out commissioned pieces of work for Clinical Commissioning Groups, Public Health, Hospitals and local authorities. YVHSC have also won community grants to work with the emerging community and carers.
