Welcome to HealthWatch
We are the charity that has been promoting science and integrity in healthcare since 1991.
We aim for the advancement for the public benefit of medical knowledge, training and care in all its branches and in particular the development of good practices in the assessment and testing of treatments and the conduct of clinical trials generally and the promotion of high standards of healthcare by practitioners.
We do this by challenging and publicising misleading advertising of health products, the sale of unproven remedies to the vulnerable and desperate, unethical marketing by pharmaceutical companies, misconduct in clinical trials, and government promotion of health and screening programmes unsupported by evidence.
Please note that we are not connected with the Healthwatch organisation set up by NHS England.
