Healthwatch Burgess Hill Engagement and Listening Tour 2018

Healthwatch West Sussex want to make local health and social care services better for people that use them. To do that, we talk to people, listen to what you tell us and share this anonymously with those who make decisions about our health and care services.

You might have seen us out and about in Burgess Hill, finding out how local health and care services work for people and how they could be improved. We want to know how health and care needs affect working age people and their families and what support they need. We’d be happy to come to your business to talk to your staff. We won’t take up much time and we’ll even bring biscuits!

As well as listening, Healthwatch provides free information and guidance plus a free Independent Health Complaints Advocacy if you need help with an NHS complaint or practical support. Just call 0300 012 0122, email helpdesk@healthwatchwestsussex.co.uk, or visit our website www.healthwatchwestsussex.co.uk.

We can help support you. Just ask…

We are here to listen, take action and influence positive change for people living and working in West Sussex. Healthwatch is transparent and independent, with the authority to demand action. Together we speak louder.

 

To be involved, please contact Caroline Whiteman 07580330416 or contact Healthwatch West Sussex on 0300 012 0122  www.healthwatchwestsussex.co.uk

Testimonials

"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."

Steve Mooney
(Steven Mooney Machinery)

"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. "

Steve Cridland, CEO
(Burgess Hill Town Council)

"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."

Nick Broom, Managing Director
(PVL UK Ltd)

"I am delighted to have a long-standing relationship with the BHBPA. Since its foundation the Association has gone from strength to strength and there is no doubt that it has brought huge benefits to its members and the business community as a whole through the partnerships it has formed with the local authorities, Sussex Police and local organisations. It is paramount that Burgess Hill businesses have an effective collective voice."
