Welcome to Healthwatch Cornwall 

We are a small organisation with a big remit - to ensure health and social care services in Cornwall are the best they can be for you, now and in the future. By listening to your experiences of publicly funded health and social care services we are able to inform decisions made by the commissioners and providers of them. This means your voice is heard by those planning and delivering services and can influence positive outcomes.

Our Annual Report is out. Read it via the Our Reports page (Easy Read coming soon).


Share your story by completing our Have your say feedback form.

You can call us on 0800 0381 281* too - as well as listening to your experiences, we can provide information about which health and social care services may be able to assist you. Read about our latest GP Access in Cornwall survey results on Our Reports and News page. Visit the About Us page to discover more about the team. Keep up-to-date on the Sustainability and Transformation Plan (Shaping Our Future) via our dedicated web page and share your views of the proposals with us.

You can sign-up to receive our newsletter via the Want to Stay in Touch box below.

Healthwatch Cornwall is part of a local Healthwatch collective that will feed into Healthwatch England and potentially influence national policy, advice and guidance.
