Steve Inett, Chief Executive, Healthwatch Kent
As CEO it is my role is to ensure that people’s voices are heard when decisions about health and social care services are being made. We also proactively gather peoples’ experiences of services and share them with the organisations who provide and commission those services to ensure they can be improved for others.
Healthwatch Kent team is made up of staff and volunteers. Volunteers are involved in every aspect of our work and are vital to achieving our mission of improving services for the people of Kent.
