Healthwatch Harrow began operating as a new independent consumer champion for health and social care in the London Borough of Harrow on 1 April 2013. We are part of a 152 strong national network of Healthwatch organisations
established under provisions in the Health and Social Care Act 2012. Healthwatch Harrow was set up as a collaborative venture and delivery model by a consortium of leading voluntary and community based providers, who have been dealing with health and social care matters for decades. The Healthwatch Harrow Board includes Age UK Harrow; Harrow Mencap; Harrow Association of Disabled people (HAD); Harrow College; Carramea, as well as lay members from the local community.
Healthwatch Harrow is led and managed by the local thirty year old social enterprise agency, Enterprise Wellness (formerly) Harrow in Business (HiB), which is accountable to the London Borough of Harrow as the commissioning body.
