Volunteers are a valued part of Healthwatch Bucks
We would love to hear from new volunteers who would like to become a Healthwatch Bucks champion. Whatever your motivation, we’re sure we can offer you something that is both challenging and rewarding. Currently we have three roles witvacancies:
Enter & View Volunteer
Are you interested in helping us to improve the way health and social care is delivered in Bucks? Do you like talking to people and listening to their views? We’re looking for people of all ages (over 18) to become ‘Enter & View’ volunteers. ‘Enter & View’ is a power we have to enter health and social care premises and report on what we see and hear. You’ll be part of a team visiting hospitals, GP surgeries or care homes to collect the views of residents, patients, staff and visitors about their experience.
Healthwatch Bucks wants to set up a network of Community Volunteers. You will play a vital part in promoting our work in your community. You will also be part of our committed team of staff and volunteers who are helping to make a difference to the way local health and social care services are run.
We need some pioneers to help us set up the network – defining how it works for the community, for our volunteers and for the organisation. If you think you could be part of a step change then do get in touch
Social Media Volunteer
Are you interested in social media? Could you help us to use social media to get our message out? We’re looking for someone who could help contribute to the Healthwatch Bucks website, Facebook, Twitter feed and other social media platforms to promote the activities and achievements of Healthwatch Bucks.
