Update from us at Healthwatch Bedford Borough

In light of recent Public Health and Healthwatch England guidance, we have been reviewing our activity in response to the coronavirus outbreak. 

In line with this guidance, we have made the decision to postpone all face to face public engagement work that we have planned over the next couple of months, especially when this:

  • Involves service visits or events with people who could be considered vulnerable
  • Might place additional burdens on NHS or social care services

We hope this postponement doesn’t cause any difficulties for you and hope you see this as the right decision at this time.

We will keep reviewing the situation and will keep you informed on alternative dates for events and our activity as the position becomes clearer. Please don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any questions or wish to discuss any of the above by emailing

Pleasemay we ask that you do not visit our offices as they will not be open until further notice.
