Meet the team

Welcome to Healthwatch Sandwell. We are the independent patient champion for health and social care in Sandwell, delivered by Engaging Communities Staffordshire.

Our role is to champion for the interests of those using health and social care services across Sandwell and to give local people an opportunity to speak out about their concerns and health care priorities.

We have a small staff team supported by a dedicated group of volunteers.
