Do you feel passionate about the value of volunteering?  Could you inspire, develop and manage our enthusiastic team of volunteers?  Could you inspire others to join them?  If you answered yes, we would love to hear from you.

Here at Healthwatch Gloucestershire, we are passionate about having a health and care service which is shaped by the people who use it. We’re the county’s independent health and care champion and we exist to make sure people are at the heart of care.

Healthwatch Gloucestershire volunteers are our link to communities across our county. They go out and listen to local people about their experiences of accessing health and care services in the county, they represent us at events, make films and vox pops and help us in the office.

Healthwatch Gloucestershire has an important role in assessing the quality of local health and social care services and influencing the design of future services.  We are looking for local people to join our Local Board and who will help the team shape our workplan.

This is a unique opportunity to use your knowledge, skills, and abilities to drive forward change within Gloucestershire.  You will need to have a strong interest in, and commitment to, improving health and social care services in Gloucestershire, and be able to represent Healthwatch Gloucestershire and the voices of local people.

The Board would particularly welcome your skills in the following areas:

  • Individuals who have senior level experience in finance (including operations and contracting)
  • Communications (especially involving ways to reach seldom heard people and/or use of technology)
  • Primary care
  • Risk management.

“This is an exciting time for us.  Our Board is comprised of relatively new members and we are taking the opportunity to look at how we work effectively and have the maximum impact.  If you are someone with the energy, enthusiasm, and commitment to make things happen, then this could be an ideal role for you.”  Nikki Richardson, Chair of the Local Board

If you want to play a leading part in shaping the future of local health and social care services, we would be delighted to hear from you.
