Healthwatch Bracknell Forest is recruiting members of the public to join the team of volunteers who help promote and carry out Healthwatch Bracknell Forest activities and functions. You know your neighbourhood; you have relatives, friends, neighbours, colleagues and a whole network of contacts who you could ask for their ideas about how to improve services for everyone. You are the local experts!
Joining the Healthwatch Bracknell Forest team will give you a great opportunity to help make a real difference to delivering service improvements and benefits for communities across Bracknell Forest.
We are currently recruiting for three roles, you maybe intrested in one or more of them.
Community Champion - Community Champions help to promote Healthwatch Bracknell Forest and its work within the local community. This could involve running a promotion stall at a local event, collecting the views from people you meet at your clubs and groups, delivering leaflets and posters to places such as local GP surgeries and, in some cases, delivering a small presentation to a local group.
Authorised Representative for Enter and View - One of the statutory powers Healthwatch Bracknell Forest has is ‘Enter & View’. Representatives, ideally in groups of three (professional, expert patient and lay member) can enter and view health and social care facilities and services. This may be because we have been invited by the service provider or because members of the public/partner organisations (such as the Care Quality Commission - CQC) have highlighted areas of concern.
Project Support Board - The project support board aims to consist of 6 local voluntary sector organisations, 3 public members, 3 experts by expierience and an independent chair. The role of the members of the Project Support Boards is to provide feedback, challenge and question the health and social care system and shapre our work program.
