At Healthwatch Kingston upon Hull, our mission is to listen to our local communities and use their views to challenge providers and commissioners of care to bring about improved services.
This page is dedicated to showing how Healthwatch is making a real difference to peoples’ experiences of health and care services in the East Riding of Yorkshire.
Healthwatch Quarterly Reports are produced to demonstrate the impact Healthwatch makes and our efforts to reach and improve local communities.
Healthwatch Annual Reports are produced at the end of June each year and details our key findings and projects throughout the last financial year.
Enter and View Reports
Under the Healthwatch regulations, local Healthwatch organisations have the power to ‘Enter and View’ providers so that we can observe how services are being delivered. The purpose of the visits are to identify good practice that can be celebrated and shared with others, and to identify any issues raised by service users.
Below are the reports of the Enter and View Visits Healthwatch East Riding of Yorkshire has made.

Virtual Engagement Reports
During the COVID-19 pandemic Healthwatch had to operate differently than in years previous to gather the views and experiences of our local communities.
To understand how the changes made impacted those who delivered and those who received care, we conducted Virtual Engagements to select Residential Care Homes in Hull.
Healthwatch plan and deliver themed projects throughout each year to combat specific issues our local communities face and make recommendations to service providers and commissioners which would help alleviate these issues.
Below are the reports of all the themed projects Healthwatch Kingston upon Hull have undertaken so far.
