- Spread the word about Healthwatch, helping people understand how they can raise their voice
- Empower people to make their experience known to us
- Champion Healthwatch within your group, neighbourhood or network
Anyone can be a Healthwatch volunteer. Perhaps you have a couple of hours a month spare? Perhaps you could raise the issue at work? Engage your employer in helping to spread the word among employees?
All you have to do is be ready to promote Healthwatch in your community & encourage people to tell us their experiences – good or bad – of health and care services. . Get the message across that Your Voice Counts. Healthwatch can tell the people who commission & provide services what you’ve told us & work with them to bring about change.
Healthwatch can be powerful in creating positive change. If people share their experiences with us our evidence base grows about what people’s real experiences of services are. We use this evidence to inform service providers and commissioners about your experiences. We speak on your behalf. We challenge poor practice and help turn it into good practice. So you can be involved in shaping local services according to what your community wants and needs. We have the strength of the law and the national influence of Healthwatch England behind us.
