Flexible call handling from KC Contact Centres: helping to improve local health and social care

About Healthwatch

Healthwatch England is the national consumer champion in health and care. At a local level, Healthwatch work to ensure local people get the best out of their health and social care services, whether it’s improving them today or helping to shape them for tomorrow. Healthwatch is all about local voices being able to influence the delivery and design of local services. Not just people who use them, but anyone who might need to in the future.

What challenges were facing Healthwatch?

Unhappy with their previous contact centre supplier, reliability was key. Healthwatch needed a service that would allow them to increase their opening times, build a knowledgebase and offer a seamless service between the contact centre and their internal departments. It was crucial Healthwatch found a partner they could interact with easily and who could provide a simple, cost effective commercial model.


Our flexible call handing service easily meets every requirement for Healthwatch. We were able to provide a solution to each of their challenges cost effectively, through a cost per call model.

“We needed a local partner that we could rely on to help develop our service, and we’ve definitely got that with KC Contact Centres. I was pleasantly surprised by the ease of transferring our service.”
