The ‘Voice Box Online’ Facebook group is open to members of the public of all ages and backgrounds who are experts in their own communities.

They will be encouraged to talk about what matters most to them about the care they receive in their local area as well as be a ‘sounding board’ for the work of their local Healthwatch.

Healthwatch Blackpool will also be taking its Voice Box on tour across the county in a series of pop-up events later this year. This will be a great opportunity to come and speak to the team about what matters most to you when it comes to health and social care.

Sheralee Turner-Birchall, Chief Executive of Healthwatch Blackpool, said: “Healthwatch Blackpool is here to make sure that all people in our communities are listened to and this project aims to give a voice to local people.

“It is vitally important that the needs of differing communities and individuals are considered by those who run, commission and regulate health and social care services.

“Our Voice Box Online Facebook group will form a crucial component of our community engagement and will ensure that Healthwatch is applying a collective voice for the residents of Blackpool when it comes down to representing their views.”
