Citizen Ambassadors

Putting citizens at the heart of planning, design and implementation and evaluation of health and care services

We need a richer understanding of community priorities and perceptions to influence and improve the quality of health and care services in Guildford & Waverley, North West Surrey and Surrey Downs.

Together with Surrey Heartlands Sustainability Transformation Partnership (STP) we have created a new Citizen Ambassador role so local people can independently influence and improve the development of services and ensure the views of patients, their carers and families are represented at all levels of any proposed changes.

Applications will be open for these paid roles from Friday 24th November 2017. To find out more and to register your interest, please click here.


Help shape our priorities!

Are you passionate about health and social care? Is there an area within the health and social care system you think Healthwatch Surrey should get involved in? If there is, you'll be pleased to hear that we are reviewing one of priorities!

Let's talk hospital discharge!

If you or someone you know is over the age of 65 and has been discharged from a hospital in Surrey in the past 18 months, we would like to hear from you!

Please complete our online survey. It will take approximately 10-15 minutes to complete, depending on how much information you choose to share. By completing this survey you will be entered into a prize draw for the opportunity to win one of five £20 Marks and Spencer vouchers!

Closing date: Friday 15th December 2017.
