Have you heard of Healthwatch, the Consumer Watchdog for health and social care? Healthwatch West Sussex is an independent service available to businesses and their employees providing advice and guidance on all aspects of local health and social care issues County-wide.
Mid Sussex District Council is supporting HealthWatch West Sussex by contacting local business to build awareness of their activities across the District. To explain more about the service, Healthwatch West Sussex will visit your business and talk to staff. They also offer a free Independent Health Complaints Advocacy that can give practical help with any NHS complaint.
Healthwatch West Sussex is running a Burgess Hill Engagement and Listening Tour during September and October and would like to work with businesses, particularly large employers to gain some insight into working age health and wellbeing issues locally.
To become involved, please contact Caroline Whiteman at Healthwatch West Sussex on 07580 330416.
"“We have been members of BHBPA from its inception, and seen the organisation steadily grow and expand into the dynamic entity it is today, bringing positive benefits to all its members.""
"This association was started with a lot of effort from a few local businessmen and has proved to be a very powerful and useful tool for our business. The BHBPA has influence at the top level; when action is needed, the BHBPA gets it done. We are kept in touch with all that is happening on our doorstep and will often act because of what is published in the weekly emails / newsletters."
"The BHBPA is the most effective and dynamic business organisation I have ever worked with in over 30 years in Local Government. It has a very active and large membership whose points of view are taken seriously by all government structures. Peter Liddell does an excellent job in providing unique and enjoyable networking opportunities where members interact and discuss points of mutual interest. It provides a forum for businesses to discuss common issues, to share experiences and to play a powerful and meaningful role in the Burgess Hill community. The BHBPA provides important and credible support for all its members and ensures that their best interests are represented where necessary. "
"The BHBPA is an energetic and vocal organisation that connects and empowers and informs the local business community acting as an effective conduit to local authority and other organisations. We are proud to be part of that community and the association."
