Where Healthwatch Portsmouth ifocuses its time and engergy is influenced by its members, the general public, local organisations and is overseen by a board of elected and co-opted volunteers.
The board make decisions about the priorities of Healthwatch Portsmouth and the main projects it will work on each year. They also work to represent local people and make sure that they are at the heart of local services.
The board is made up of a variety of people from different backgrounds, with a range of skills and experience to support the tean. There are members selected from the general membership and wider public, advisors (from the University of Portsmouth, Learning Links and Portsmouth City Council) and finally the Healthwatch Manager.
