Healthwatch Wandsworth, the new independent consumer champion for local health and social care is seeking local people to help us improve local health and care services for those that live, work and use services in Wandsworth Borough.
Healthwatch Wandsworth is all about local voices being able to influence the delivery and design of local services. Not just for people who use them, but anyone who might need to in the future. Healthwatch will work to help local people get the best out of their local health and social care services.
We now need people to help us reach out into the community to connect with local people, as well as support our Enter and View Team conduct their inspections of NHS and Council funded health and care services. We want to hear from people who feel they could represent a group of people they identify with, or represent Healthwatch at local or national level. You can volunteer in a way that best meets your skills and experiences.
We have a number of opportunities available in the following areas:
- Special Interest Champions
- Healthwatch Representatives
- Administration Assistants
- Enter and View Representatives
- Outreach and Engagement Assistants
- Research Assistants
Volunteers are a vital part of the leadership and governance of Healthwatch Wandsworth and are involved in every aspect of the work that we do. As well as the opportunities above, every member of Healthwatch Wandsworth has the chance to be involved just by being a member. By being a member of Healthwatch Wandsworth you’ll be helping to bring about positive change through being involved in our research activities, responding to our surveys and consultations. You will also receive our regular ebulletin and quarterly newsletter with the latest news on health and social care developments in the borough and nationally.
