Part of the local Healthwatch programme is to carry out Enter and View visits. Healthwatch Wigan and Leigh authorised representatives carry out these visits to health and social care services to find out how they are being run and make recommendations where there are areas for improvement.

Key findings 

  • Overall – patients were content with the care being provided.
  •  Activities – there were many ongoing activities planned, and patients felt they could take part if they wished.

  • Care plan – some had seen their care plan, though others had not or did not know it in detail
  • Individual Mental Health Advocacy – there was advice on getting an advocate and those that had them were happy. A smaller number were not aware of the individual mental health advocacy offer
