Healthwatch Salford are the independent champion for people who use health and social care services in Salford. We’re here to make sure that those running services, put people at the heart of care.
Our sole purpose is to understand the needs, experiences and concerns of people who use health and social care services and to speak out on their behalf.
We focus on ensuring that people’s worries and concerns about current services are addressed and we work to get services right for the future.
One of Healthwatch Salford’s statutory duties is to involve people in the scrutiny of health and social care services. We want our website and information to be accessible to everyone. Your role will be to help us get this right, no matter people’s needs.
In addition to producing and reviewing Healthwatch Salford's materials, we are regularly invited to read over documents from health and social care organisations to ensure they are user friendly. We are also asked to provide feedback or comments on information produced and provided by health and social care organisations.
In this role you will help to make our information, and that of health and social care organisations, more accessible. You may find yourself looking through documents, leaflets or papers to make comments on how to improve them or to support Healthwatch Salford staff to respond to a request for a Healthwatch to provide a comment or response to a particular care issue. In making information clearer for people you will be enabling them to understand what is happening to health and care in their community and the impact sharing their experience makes.
