Establishing local Healthwatch: governance

Establishing local Healthwatch (LHW) is a series of briefings produced by the LGA to assist local authorities and their partners in local communities and the NHS to support the commissioning, setting up and early development of local Healthwatch.

This briefing considers governance options and principles for Healthwatch, gives a snapshot of the different solutions that local authorities are coming up with and reflects some of their deliberations in developing governance structures.
