We are recruiting volunteers to join Healthwatch Southend to make sure the voice of local people is heard.
Health and care services are changing rapidly at the moment, not least because of coronavirus, so it's really important to find out what local residents think and get this built into the plans of the NHS and Council. We have opportunities for volunteers to support our work in capturing real experiences of care (mystery shopping, online focus groups etc) or joining our Advisory Group to set our priorities and be the face of Healthwatch Southend.
