Making care more equal

Our Healthwatch is working on a project with the local NHS to help them tackle health inequalities. They want to find out what makes it harder for some people to get the care they need.

Tackling health inequalities is one of the top priorities for our local NHS and care services. 

About the workshops

We are running targeted focus groups to listen to the views of Gypsy and Traveller communities, people whose first language isn't English and rough sleepers. 

And three general focus groups open to anyone who lives in Cambridge, South or East Cambridgeshire.

Join one of our focus groups and help the NHS and other services make care more equal for people in your community.
