Information and Signposting Service

Healthwatch Wigan and Leigh will provide patients, carers, their families and any member of the local community with clear, straightforward and up-to-date information regarding their rights and choices in health and social care.

For example:

  • You may need help finding an NHS dentist
  • You may want support in changing your GP
  • You may need information on care homes for a family member
