New Advocacy Provision

Warwickshire County Council, Public Health has recently awarded a new Health Advocacy contract to VoiceAbility. The service goes live on 2nd July 2018 and includes Independent Mental Health Advocacy, NHS Complaints Advocacy and General Health Advocacy.

VoiceAbility has worked closely with commissioners to mobilise the contract and refine the referral routes into the service. Both self-referrals and professional referrals into the service will be accepted.  

Key points to note are as follows:

  • Professional referrals for the Health Advocacy Service will be accepted via secure email address (e.g. .net or .gcsx), or via the telephone help-desk
  • Self-referrals will be accepted for the Health Advocacy Service via the telephone help-desk or post 

Please see the attached briefing for further information. Also attached is a briefing about the Care & Support Statutory Advocacy service that VoiceAbility will also be delivering from 2nd July 2018. Please note that this service is health or social care professional referral only.

Please do not hesitate to VoiceAbility directly if you require further information. You can also visit their website where referral forms and information leaflets can be downloaded: https://www.voiceability.org/services/coventry-and-warwickshire.
