We’ve agreed on our strategic priorities for 2023/24. These provide the framework we will use for deciding on the work we do.

Our annual priorities help us determine what research we conduct, as well as where to target our efforts on behalf of local people – particularly individuals and communities whose voices aren’t always heard.

We’ll use our annual priorities to guide:

  • How we engage with other organisations
  • Which meetings we go to
  • Who we talk to about local health and social care.

This year’s annual priorities have been informed by our previous work, as well as what we’ve learned in the past 12 months about people’s experiences of health and social care services in Buckinghamshire.

What we’ll focus on

Our priorities for 2023/24 are as follows:

  • Primary care (with a focus on community pharmacies)
  • Social care (with a focus on hospital discharge)
  • Children and young people’s experiences of health and social care.

Healthwatch Bucks will also take a cross-cutting interest in:

  • Health inequalities.

This cross-cutting interest means we will consider health inequalities as part of all the work we do, rather than treat it as a single, standalone issue.

We’ve put together a report that sets out in detail how and why Healthwatch Bucks has chosen its strategic priorities for this year. We hope this will help our partners and the people of Buckinghamshire to understand the decisions we’ve made.
