Healthwatch Bucks has announced the election of a new Chair, John Meech, who will take up the role from 12 December 2022.

John, who has been a Director of Healthwatch Bucks for 3 years and Vice Chair since May, has extensive experience at a senior level in the health sciences sector. Commenting on his appointment, he said:

After working with Healthwatch Bucks for the past 3 years, I’m absolutely thrilled to be stepping into the role of Chair. The work we do on behalf of local people is vital, and arguably more important than ever as we face the health and social care challenges associated with the current cost of living crisis.

I’m passionate about making sure Buckinghamshire residents have access to the services they need and look forward to working with the Healthwatch Bucks team throughout 2023 and beyond. Together, through listening to the voices of local people and influencing health and social care providers, commissioners and policymakers, we can help to improve essential services for all who need them.

Zoe McIntosh, Chief Executive of Healthwatch Bucks, commented:

Both the Board and the staff team warmly welcome John as our new Chair. We look forward to working with him on engaging the community with our work and helping to shape the health and social care services our residents rely on.

    Had you thought of helping Oxford Health FT improve the gardens at the Whiteleaf Centre which are in a very poor state? My efforts have been in vain!!
