Over the last year, Healthwatch Bucks has been working closely with ex-servicemen and women across Buckinghamshire. We have worked with them about accessing support for their health and social care needs.
Healthwatch Bucks has been awarded ‘Highly Commended’ at the national Healthwatch England awards for these projects. This award celebrates the impact a local Healthwatch team has made when working with another local Healthwatch or other partners.
We spoke to Robert Nikiel, our Community Lead, about what this project entailed. Also, the impact it had on helping veterans in Bucks.
