Changes at Healthwatch Kingston


A message from the Healthwatch Kingston upon Thames Board


Healthwatch Kingston upon Thames (a local charitable company*) has taken over responsibility, on a contract with RB Kingston, for providing a Healthwatch in Kingston from 1 April 2017. The previous provider and employer, since 2013, was Parkwood Healthcare Ltd.

The current members of the Healthwatch Kingston upon Thames board are: Grahame Snelling (Chair), Liz Meerabeau, James Davitt and Nigel Spalding.

In the first week of the contract, new computers have been set up, new software has been installed (including Office 365), the photocopier lease has been reassigned for continued use, the website domain has been transferred, the email addresses have been transferred and many of the data files have transferred. The email addresses have also been simplified (to firstname@healthwatchkingston.org.uk) but the previous addresses will still work.

We now have a new telephone number which is 0203 326 1255 

In respect of staff, Stephen Hardisty left Parkwood Healthcare Ltd on 28th March. Sophie Bird is continuing to work for Healthwatch Kingston. Diva Shah resigned on 4th April. The board is now working on the recruitment of new staff.

The board will also be seeking new board members.

At the present time, the board does not anticipate any changes to the meeting dates and work of the task groups, which includes the identification of priorities and projects for 2016/17. The next meeting of the Board in public will be on Wednesday 24th May from 5-7pm in the Kingston Quaker Centre.

For any further information please email/contact grahame@healthwatchkingston.org.uk.
