Healthwatch East Sussex (HWES) is your county-wide local consumer champion for health and social care. Although we have a team of paid staff actively engaging in representing your health and social care needs, we could not function without our network of Healthwatch Champions.

Our Healthwatch Champions support our work by:

  • Helping to deliver engagement work in their communities
  • Are active connectors in their own local area
  • Feeding back the views of their communities and local people, as well as attending meetings
  • Above all else, our Healthwatch Champions are volunteers committed to improving health and social care services and support the Healthwatch team
