Voluntary Role

 

Healthwatch Cumbria is an independent organisation set up to champion the views of health and social care service users in Cumbria, with the goal of making services better and improving health and well-being.

Do you care about your health and care services?

Do you fundamentally believe that patients and their families are in the strongest position to know how services can and should be improved?

Do you have some time to devote to supporting a dedicated team of staff in carrying out this very worthwhile task by providing them with guidance and scrutiny to ensure they work to the best of their ability and achieve as much impact as possible?

If you have answered yes to all of the above, then a role on the Board of Healthwatch Cumbria may well help you to feel that you are making a difference.
