Highlights include

  • Completing a multiyear project to visit all care homes in the borough
  • Improvements and recognition of good practice in mental health
  • A high profile public event that allowed people to discuss local mental health care and plans for the future

“It is really positive that the Richmond Healthwatch report has picked up the work that the Service has been doing with carers… the Trust has committed to the Triangle of Care, an accredited framework"

And our increasing reach into the community:

  • 80,000 households in Richmond received information about Healthwatch Richmond
  • 4,000 separate actions taken as a result of our communications
  • 1,4000 people reached through projects, outreach and signposting
  • 95% increase in calls to our signposting line
