About us

Local Healthwatches have been set up across England to create a strong, independent consumer champion our aim is to:


• Strengthen the collective voice of citizens and communities in influencing local health and social care services to better meet their needs
and
• Support people to find the right health and social care services for them by providing appropriate information, advice and signposting.

Healthwatch Middlesbrough works with local people, patients, service users, carers, community groups, organisations, service providers and commissioners to get the best out of local health and social care services. This doesn’t just mean improving services today but influencing and shaping services to meet the needs of the local communities tomorrow.

Improving Access to Psychological Therapies (IAPT) 2018

Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) in Durham and Tees are working together to deliver an enhanced IAPT service that it is consistent and equitable across the region with a single point of access.  This will mean changing the way that the service is delivered currently, and they are at the stage where they would like to gain views on the proposed model from past and current services users.
