Healthwatch remains neutral ahead of Election

As a statutory body, Healthwatch Reading follows regulations which require it to be impartial in the run-up to the 12 December 2019 Eeneral Election.

Healthwatch Reading is following guidance from Healthwatch England in the pre-election period which states we must:

  • continue to act in a politically neutral manner
  • not engage in, or advocate for, any party-political activities
  • publish report findings which could be politically sensitive.

We will therefore not be undertaking any media interviews or publishing any of our own findings about local health or care services until a new government is formed.
