Healthwatch Croydon, the official consumer group for local health and social care services, is seeking volunteers.
They say, “We make a difference to health and social care services in the borough by receiving the views of residents, analysing the comments anonymously, and reporting back to decision-makers like the local NHS Trust, Croydon Clinical Commissioning Group and the Care Quality Commission.
“But we cannot do it without volunteers. At each stage of the process you could have a role from gaining views from residents and analysing comments, to promoting what Healthwatch Croydon does in the community and representing us at a number of community meetings and events. Every role makes a difference.”
Roles on offer are diverse and include working both in the office at George Street and positions within the community. High quality in-house training is provided, so no experience is required, just a commitment to want to see better health and social care services in response to residents’ need.
“We welcome all ages, experience and backgrounds. We want all residents to be involved in Healthwatch Croydon, and can even create a role based around you and the time you can give us,” they say.
If you would like to volunteer, or want to find out more, email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 020 8663 5635.
