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.
"“I have belonged to this group since I started my own business, Lea Graham Associates, in 1986. The association has been through several incarnations since then, but its most recent one, BHBPA, is by far the best.
It’s much more than just a networking group, although it is supremely good at that too. BHBPA is inclusive and friendly and acts like a mutual-support society. The events are stimulating, worthwhile and often great fun and I believe most members share this opinion.”"
"Regular, well organised events, excellent updates and information by email along with a warm welcome from the Chair and Coordinator are just some of the positives at BHBPA."
"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 a fantastic hub for our business community to get together and catch up, discuss important local issues and connect new and interesting enterprises."
