Your local Healthwatch is an independent consumer champion for health and social care service. We listen to members of the public and share their experiences and views with the people who run, pay for, design and regulate services with the aim of improving services for those who use them.  

In this piece of work, we’re keen to hear how people use, or why people don’t use digital technology, particularly to support managing their own health, wellbeing or health conditions. It might be important to know that when we talk about digital technology, we mean mobile phones, tablets and computers, as well as wearable technology such as fitness trackers and alarm buttons that might be worn to support independence. We’re also keen to hear about use of websites, mobile technology such as apps, and these wearable devices to support health.  

The information we collect will be used to produce a report to inform NHS Trusts and others who are looking to develop the use of digital technology to support health and social care. We’ll make sure your voice will be heard and considered during this development.  

This survey is anonymous. We won’t tell anyone who provided us with this information and we won’t put your name with the answers. However, if you are interested in finding out more about your local Healthwatch or what we do, please go to www.healthwatch.co.uk
