Local Support and Services

Advice and signposting

Our information service

Healthwatch Dorset provides an information and signposting service for local people so that they can make choices about health and social care services.  Our service is free and confidential and it’s independent of both the NHS and Social Services.

Please note that:

  • We do not ourselves have powers to investigate individual formal complaints about NHS or social care services.
  • We cannot make a complaint to a service on your behalf.  If you need support to make a formal complaint about a NHS or social care service, see our Complaints & Advocacy section.
  • We are not able to offer financial or legal advice.  That should always be sought from a trained specialist such as a solicitor or financial advisor.
