Helping new communities to get access to health & social care in Hounslow

There are some communities which Public Health Hounslow have identified as increasing in number, however, despite having higher health and social needs – they do not appear to be accessing services. This project by Hounslow Healthwatch is designed to help and support these communities. If you are interested in helping others in your community or others then please contact HealthWarch.

Firstcare Practice, will shortly be holding an event bringing people together and will give people from these new communities to meet others and help and support each other., at the practice. There will also be a dietician, a doctor and a specialist to help you find the best ways to access services. This will be supported by Healthwatch Hounslow. If you would like to attend this event, please contact us firstcare.practice@nhs.net. Due to limited availability, we will limit availability to 50 people. Please register your interest on this wait list and we will inform you when free tickets will be available.

Book your ticket here by clicking here. There are only 50 available on Saturday 29th October @ 1200.

Are you interested in becoming an Emerging Communities Outreach Volunteer?

This would be a great opportunity for willing volunteers from emerging communities (Afghan, Algerian, Bulgarian, Burmese, Nepalese, Romanian and Tamil) to become more actively and directly involved in health and social care projects through Healthwatch.

The main motive of this opening is to ensure that members of emerging communities have access to information about the healthcare services available to them, and to therefore ensure that no individual is deprived of health and social care services due to a lack of knowledge about services, or difficulties understanding communications made in English.

For more information, please call Hounslow HealthWatch on 020 3603 2438 or email info@healthwatchhounslow.co.uk
