Waiting for hospital treatment

Have you recently waited for hospital treatment? Or are you waiting right now? Healthwatch Southwark wants to hear about your experience.


We are launching an exciting new project, called ‘Waiting for Hospital Treatment, focusing on local people’s experiences. 

Healthwatch Southwark wants to understand waiting beyond the numbers and targets, and learn about people’s journeys from when they first noticed their symptoms to when they start treatment.

We have chosen this as a priority area because we have heard that people are often waiting longer than they’d like for treatment, and this can have an impact on their mental wellbeing and physical health.

Hearing about what’s working, what isn’t, and what people want from their care helps us to drive improvements in local health and social care services.
