What is an Enter and View Representative for Croydon LINk?
A group of members of the Croydon LINk became Authorised LINk Enter & View Representative. This means they were trained to enter certain health and social care premises, such as hospitals, care homes and doctors surgeries.
The aim of these visits are to view the care provided, and report on the findings (both good and areas for improvement) to the service providers and commissioners of services.
The Enter and View programme is an important part of the LINk activity and the LINk has powers under the “Local Government and Public Involvement in Health Act 2007” which enables them to carry out this role.
