Scams and how to avoid them



HEALTHWATCH KENT is an independent organisation set up to champion the views of patients and social care users across Kent. Its mission is to raise the public's voice to improve the quality of local health and social care services in Kent.


The health and social care system may seem very complicated. To help people navigate the different services and providers in Kent, to ensure they can find and access available services, Healthwatch also offers a FREE Information and Signposting service. Call Healthwatch on 0808 801 0102 or email

To update people on its activities, Healthwatch holds public meetings and produces a monthly newsletter for the general public, and a fortnightly bulletin for key stakeholders. A hardcopy leaflet about its service and a 'Speak Out' feedback form are also available.


The Healthwatch team wants to work with individuals and organisations to make Healthwatch a success and would like to talk with interested people about working together effectively. If you are an individual who is passionate about health and social care, or a voluntary organisation who wants to share the views and experiences of your clients/network, then please register with Healthwatch if you have not done so already.
