“I had just moved into the area and was finding it extremely difficult and time consuming to find a local surgery that had a resident GP specialising in diabetic care. I could not find a list via my internet searches and had started calling local surgeries one by one. After many fruitless calls, I contacted the Healthwatch. They took details of my request and sent me a list of practices that had the diabetic support I was looking for. Within 10 minutes of receiving the information, I had arranged a visit to register with an NHS surgery.”
“When I contacted Healthwatch for my child, who has ME/CFS,26 I had no idea of services available. My child had been kicked out of children’s services due to age. Your help with pointing us in the right direction has been invaluable. My child has been seen by the specialist at Haywards Heath ME/CFS clinic and has been attending a course for people with ME/CFS. My child is still not better but at least is receiving some support from the NHS. Thank you for your help.”
