Healthwatch Suffolk

Dan was delighted to speak at the first AGM of Healthwatch Suffolk.

Healthwatch Suffolk is an independent regional organisation which was set up with the objective of being an influential and effective voice for the people of Suffolk. Providing a channel for our views on how health and social care services are provided across the County.
