Become a Healthwatch Somerset Board member

Help shape health and social care in Somerset

We’re looking for new volunteer Board members to help make the NHS and social care system work better for local people.

The Healthwatch network is the only patient and public representative group with a presence in every local authority area in England, with a direct link to local health and care leaders and, through Healthwatch England, to national bodies and the Government.

The Healthwatch Somerset Board plays a vital role in leading this work locally.  Our volunteer Board members guide and monitor our strategy, work and organisation, and represent the voice of local people at strategic meetings with health and care partners.

Maybe you have been volunteering during the pandemic and want to support ongoing health and social care development in Somerset, or you may have a particular area of interest, for example mental health.  Whatever your knowledge, experience and skills, if you live in Somerset and are passionate about helping local communities shape their health and social care services, we’d love to hear from you.
