The Board of Directors oversee the work plan, and individually take responsibility for particular tasks and represent Healthwatch when liaising with other agencies.
It means taking responsibility, but it is rewarding. It requires commitment, but it needn't be onerous. All directors are volunteers and we understand that everyone can take a step back when they need to. New directors can be recommended by the Board, or nominated by any Healthwatch member.
Healthwatch works hard to bring local issues to the attention of the people who plan and provide our health and care services: what works well, what could be improved. Please help us to carry on making a difference.
