The latest Healthwatch Peterborough Annual Report includes the following quotes from a pool user and Healthwatch. 

We would like to thank Angela Burrows and all at Healthwatch Peterborough for their continued support and also send our very best wishes to retiring Chair, David Whiles, Due to health reasons, he has stepped down. David has a long history of volunteering to improve services for local people, and has been a loyal supporter of St George's and we thank him and wish him all the very best.

“Healthwatch Peterborough have continued to be there when we need them, and I’m eternally grateful”

How we’ve worked with our community

Hydrotherapy Policy (aquatic therapies)

"We supported service users and carers when they wanted answers from local health commissioners.

Users of St George’s Community Hydrotherapy Pool, who value hydrotherapy services very highly, wanted to make sure they continue to exist in Peterborough, pointed out to us that our local health commissioner did not have a policy on providing hydrotherapy services.

We supported the pool users’ requests for a policy by writing to the commissioner and raising the issue at Peterborough’s Health and Wellbeing Board. Our persistence and that of the pool’s users paid off when the commissioners published a hydrotherapy policy in March 2017.

Where service providers seek to engage with people, we have acted to amplify that impact, promoting consultations, surveys and other engagement opportunities being carrying out."
