Governance Documents

Our Governance documents are currently under review and will  be published here shortly.

What does the Advisory Group do?

Our Advisory Group works alongside the local team to play an important role in setting and maintaining the strategic direction of Healthwatch Southend. It has a significant role to play, ensuring that Healthwatch Southend adheres to its principles and purpose and operates in a moral and ethical way in the service of the local community.

The role includes:

  • Formulating strategy and workplans with the local Manager

  • Ensuring accountability for quality delivery of the strategy and workplan

  • Shaping a positive culture

  • Providing accountability to local people

The Advisory Group is formed of volunteers and lay people and is not responsible for the day to day running of Healthwatch Southend. This is done by a small team of paid staff.

Meetings

Most of the Advisory Group’s meetings are held in public, with an opportunity to ask questions at the discretion of the chairman; these are not public meetings.

There are certain decisions – who we represent and engage with, for example – which have to be taken in a meeting in public. The Advisory Group may hold some meetings in private, if there are confidential issues to discuss, or as briefings to develop our strategy. At other times, the Advisory Group may hold open meetings to capture the experiences of local people who use health or care service
