Healthwatch Portsmouth were proud to be part of 5 Healthwatches across the NHS Wessex region who won a highly commended award from Healthwatch England’s National Conference back in 2015.

The award itself was for ‘Making a Difference’ with other local Healthwatch outlets. This was awarded for the work we did designing a framework guide for good practice with patient and public engagement in commissioning.
