Volunteering opportunities


What can I do as a Local Healthwatch Volunteer?

There are lots of different ways in which our volunteers help and support the work we do.

Our volunteers can:

  • Gather experiences of local health and social care services in hospitals, GP surgeries, and local high streets
  • Raise awareness of who we are and what we do in the local community.
  • Present our research and findings to local groups, such as Patient Participation Groups and Clinical Commissioning Groups in the local area.
  • Promote Healthwatch Surrey at local events.
  • Help us to plan and carry out specific projects.
  • Undertake desk-based research.
  • Be part of the Healthwatch Surrey Board team
  • Talk to patients, carers and relatives in care homes as an Enter and View Representative.

Volunteering with us is flexible:

You can choose to do a bit of everything, or just focus on the activities that interest you the most. We will work with you to match opportunities to your skills, interests and ambitions.
