Healthwatch County Durham: COVID-19 Update
Due to COVID-19, we are currently working from home and with a reduced staff team. Trying to minimise the spread of the virus, as well as supporting the NHS, local communities and individuals where we can is our top priority at this difficult time.
Therefore all of our public engagement events are postponed until further notice, including our Enter and View visits. We would like to apologise to anyone who may have had a session planned with us and hope you understand this decision given the need to limit unnecessary risk to the public.
However, we want to assure you that Healthwatch County Durham is still here for you- you can still share your experiences of health and social care services via the 'contact us' page on our website, or by calling us on 0800 3047039. For futher information please see our news update
Keep safe and we hope to see you soon!
