Our Work


To gather a full understanding of the experience of health and care services during the Covid-19 outbreak, over a period over of 12 weeks (end of May to end of August 2020) Healthwatch Calderdale and partners used a variety of different engagement approaches and tools including a survey and virtual focus groups to talk to people living and working in Calderdale.

Healthwatch Calderdale has now published its Hypermobility Syndromes report – thank you to everybody who took part.

The purpose of our project was to collect the voices of adults with hypermobility syndromes in Yorkshire and the Humber in order to develop an understanding of their health and social care experiences. 

There was also an opportunity for participants to tell us anything else that they felt was relevant to their experience of their condition.

We had over 250 responses to the survey – thank you to everyone who took part. 

National work

In 2019 Healthwatch Calderdale embarked on a project to collect the experiences of children and young people on health and social care.

The purpose of our project is to discover what matters most to children and young people in terms of health and social care.
