Making health and social care services work better, for everyone

The Warwick District wave of the Rights to Access project is ending soon which means we will be moving on to Stratford-Upon-Avon District. This wave will run from May until July 2019.

The Rights to Access Project has been launched by Healthwatch Warwickshire to help people who are experiencing homelessness to access healthcare when they need it.

As part of the project we have produced:

  • a plastic Rights to Access card with information for people to keep with them to help when accessing treatment within Primary Care.
  • a booklet with further information on rights to access
  • and free workshops for any community/voluntary/statutory organisation who supports anyone experiencing homelessness within Warwickshire on Rights to Access Primary Care and NHS guidelines.

The workshop will provide you with information on the following:

  • Brief introduction to Healthwatch Warwickshire
  • Rights to access healthcare
  • NHS Constitution
  • GP duty of care
  • NHS guidelines for GP registration

Feedback from previous workshops:

Workshops to be held at:

Alongside these workshops we will be giving out the booklets with useful information from the workshop and around Primary Care in order to help you/your organisation to support individuals and the plastic credit card size Rights cards for your organisation to give out to people you know who are experiencing homelessness.
