New home for consumer champion for health

New premises for a consumer champion for health and social care in the Royal Borough will open in Windsor.

The keys to a site in Castle Hill House, Castle Hill, were given to Brain Huggett, chairman of Healthwatch Windsor and Maidenhead, on Thursday by centre manager Emma Sheppard.

Mr Huggett said: "We are delighted to have found premises right in the heart of the Windsor, as this is will provide an excellent location for residents wishing to access our signposting to advice and guidance service. 

"It will also work well for our trustees, members and for the volunteers we will be recruiting."

Castle Hill House is a Grade II Georgian building built between 1746 and 1788 opposite the Henry VIII Gate to Windsor Castle.

Emma Sheppard, Castle Hill House centre manager said "Healthwatch WAM is keeping up a fine healthcare tradition for the building, which served as a doctor's house during the 1880s and was leased to King Edward Hospital during the Second World War for use as a Nurses Hostel, then to the Minister for Health in 1973."
