The Mayor asks residents to get involved
The Mayor of Croydon, Cllr Patricia Hay-Justice, commended our work at our 2015 Annual Meeting. She expressed the importance of the role that Healthwatch Croydon has, and why all residents need to be involved:
“We all have a massive stake in Croydon’s health services. It will all get better if we do our part. We need one voice, one champion. Healthwatch Croydon works collaboratively and needs our support to give them added strength, to ensure our voices are heard.”
