Meet the Healthwatch Gloucestershire team
Healthwatch Gloucestershire Manager
Helen’s role is to manage Healthwatch Gloucestershire’s Volunteer and Engagement Team. Through engagement with the public, we listen to people’s experiences of health and care services, what they like, and what can be improved. She also has responsibility for the volunteering programme; Healthwatch Gloucestershire volunteers are at the heart of everything we do, and are involved in many activities, including; Enter and View visits, project work and community engagement.
George is the main point of contact for Healthwatch Gloucestershire volunteers, ensuring they are supported in their roles. He is also responsible for recruiting new volunteers, co-ordinating all volunteer activities including arranging induction sessions, on-going training, and volunteer supervision. The role also includes identifying and leading on new projects which reach into local communities.
Suzie’s role is to seek out and listen to the people who live in Gloucestershire, to hear their experiences of using health and care services, then collate the feedback and use this to look for trends and themes of the key messages. These will then be fed into the commissioners and providers of the services to make sure that local people’s experiences influence how services are managed and provided.
Youth Engagement Officer
Jessica leads our exciting new Young Listeners project which aims to encourage local children and young people to speak up about their health and care needs to help shape and improve services in the county. Jessica recruits and trains young volunteers, and works with them to plan and deliver activities to engage and listen to other young people. She brings young people together to share their questions, concerns and views about health and wellbeing, and she supports them to share their ideas with those responsible for local services to help drive positive action and change.
Natalie has joined us to support the general running of the Healthwatch Gloucestershire office. Her role involves admin support such as preparing documents, organising meetings, answering the phone and email enquiries and supporting the Healthwatch Local Board.
