We want to involve as many local people in our work as we can. It’s very important to us that we learn more about what you think of health and care in the borough, so we can improve things together.

Join us at an event in Richmond.
Community Voices Richmond
Community Voices Richmond aims to bring together a mix of local organisations/groups and community champions who represent our local population including those we do not traditionally hear from.
The group will be an opportunity for attendees to:
- share with local health and care representatives what their local community or client group is experiencing about local services.
- work with us and other community reps to use the insight and feedback shared to identify actions/next steps to improve the quality of local services.
- explore opportunities for partnership working including potential funding opportunities relating to health and wellbeing.
- advise and act as a sounding board on our early plans for working with local communities to inform health and care projects, for example, redesigning or introducing new services.
If you’re part of a voluntary or community group and would like to represent them in this group, email [email protected]
You can read the Community Voices Richmond terms of reference.
Patient participation groups
Generally made up of a group of volunteer patients, the practice manager and one or more of the GPs from the practice, patient participation groups meet on a regular basis to discuss the services on offer, and how improvements can be made for the benefit of patients and the practice.
Join a patient participation group at your local GP surgery.
Community health champions
Become a Community Health Champion and help keep your family, friends, and local community aware, informed and up to date with the information they need to stay safe and healthy.
Healthwatch is the independent champion for people who use health and social care services. They are here to make sure that those running health and care services, put people at the heart of care.
