Volunteering

Healthwatch is keen to recruit volunteers who have an interest in health and social care. People giving time to carry out Healthwatch work in different ways is key to how Healthwatch operates.

Healthwatch has many volunteering opportunities, some are regular, others short term and some may be for one off events. Volunteers will be recruited through a selection procedure. A full induction and training will be provided for certain activities. Out of pocket expenses will be paid.Please click here for more information.

Enter and View Representaives

These volunteers will be authorised representatives. Their role is to observe how local health and social care services are being provided. Representatives will need to interact with service users and providers. They will need to identify examples of both good practice and where improvements need to be made. The information will be collated in a report and sent to the service provider for a response.

Premises that could be visited include hospitals, care, homes, GP practices, health centres etc.

We are looking for people who have an interest in making a difference for their local community. It is important to note that you will NOT be undertaking inspections. Full training will be given. This will need to be completed before any visits are undertaken.

Email Manisha@healthwatchbarkinganddagenham.co.uk to register  your interest.
