Since launching in April 2013, Healthwatch Southwark has received 250 enquiries from the public about GP access. This constitutes more than 50% of all enquiries that we receive about health and social care.
Healthwatch Southwark is aware that not all of Southwark’s different communities get to speak up about their difficulties in accessing GPs. As a result, their specific concerns and unmet needs can go unresolved.
Healthwatch Southwark engages with of different community groups in order to ensure that seldom-heard groups and individuals’ views and concerns are represented and fed back to those who commission and deliver GP services.
