The People We Need
Healthwatch needs people who can talk with users and take note of what is happening in places where problems have been reported, or where examples of interesting or good practice can be made known and publicised.
Healthwatch wants to attract a diverse group of people who would like to work for users and patients in this way, connect with them and represent their views. You will need some knowledge of health and social care services either from work, volunteering, or personal experience. Training and support will be given.
