Meet our volunteer - Nick

"While retired I really wanted a volunteer role that would allow enable me to use my knowledge and experiences, but also act on behalf of patients."

Nick joined us a few years back and has helped on several key projects since then. We asked him to share his experience.

Nick's View

"I’ve been a volunteer with Healthwatch since 2018, following a 38-year career with the NHS as a senior manager.

While retired I really wanted a volunteer role that would enable me to use my knowledge and experiences, but also act on behalf of patients.And without doubt Healthwatch has allowed me to do that.

Since joining I’ve been involved in a wide variety of projects such as patient literature review, complaints reviews and environmental audits. There’s an awful lot of work that a volunteer can become involved with.

As an organization Healthwatch is extremely proactive and are extremely good with their communications - and that applies with volunteers as well. I would certainly recommend it as a very active and positive volunteer role.
