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 has a small staff team and around 50 active volunteers who help us be the voice of the people. We need someone to help us manage the office, handle our social media accounts, organise events, look after volunteers and answer the phone.
