Healthwatch gives people a powerful voice, locally and nationally. At a local level, Healthwatch works to make health and care services work for the people who use them, improving them today or helping to shape them for tomorrow.
To help us be more effective, we want to hear from you. Tell us about your experiences of publicly funded health and care services. The more feedback we receive, the stronger our voice.

Over 100 different health, care and wellbeing organisations were represented, making Healthwatch Milton Keynes 2016 (HWMK2016) the largest event of its kind in Milton Keynes and a one stop shop for information and advice on health and social care products and services available locally.

Healthwatch Milton Keynes is one of a network of 152 local Healthwatch working across England. We collect and collate feedback from the public about their experiences of health and care and feed that information back to service providers. Healthwatch England works at national level, using information collected from the local Healthwatch network to examine national trends and report to the government, and NHS service commissioners and providers.
