4 Healthwatch Devon Devon County Council has to procure a Local Healthwatch for the County, just as it had to procure a Local Involvement Network. The new organisation has to be in place by 1 April 2013 This is great opportunity to consolidate engagement and other activities into an effective, high profile ‘consumer voice’ for health and social care in the County

8 Survey Feedback highlighted importance of: GP surgeries/Patient Participation Groups Signposting Referral routes/gateways to services The independence of Healthwatch Devon Lay leadership Ability to influence

9 Outcomes-based specification We have produced an ‘outcomes-based’ specification for Healthwatch Devon This will enable an organisation or group of organisations to show how they can carry out the range of Healthwatch functions

10 Healthwatch Functions B3.8

11 1.Gathering views and understanding the experiences of people who use services, carers and the wider community 2.Making people’s views known 3.Promoting and supporting the involvement of people in the commissioning and provision of local care services and how they are scrutinised

12 Healthwatch Functions B3.8 4.Recommending investigation or special review of services via Healthwatch England or directly to the Care Quality Commission 5.Providing advice and information about access to services and support for making informed choices 6.Making the views and experiences of people known to Healthwatch England and providing a steer to help it carry out its role as national champion

13 Healthwatch Functions B3.8 Healthwatch Devon will have a wider role than LINks. It will continue the current LINK functions: Gathering local views on health and social care issues Engaging with communities and individuals Feeding back those views to commissioners and providers Getting people actively involved in decision-making Highlighting issues identified by communities Responding to local and national consultations Visiting services to monitor delivery

14 Agency Relationships Care Quality Commission Clinical Commissioning Groups Health & Wellbeing Board Healthwatch England GP practice Patient Participation Groups Other local healthwatch organisations, especiallt from bordering local authorities DCC commissioners

15 Joined-up engagement The most distinctive element of Healthwatch Devon is our decision to merge engagement of self-defined communities of interest, i.e. User Led Organisations, with the geographical community engagement carried out by LINk Hence it captures the significant aspects of the current engagement contract

16 Joined-up engagement We are also joining up engagement of children and young people on health and social care issues with the engagement of adults under the Healthwatch Devon banner Time and time again the public have told us to join things up and make them more accessible. Healthwatch Devon will be a powerful consumer voice doing just that

17 Involvement in evaluation We have involved local stakeholders in consultation which informed the specification, but our open procurement means that we cannot risk having any conflicts of interest in our tender evaluation We are therefore involving service users from outside Devon in our evaluation process
