Healthwatch Wigan and Leigh is the independent consumer champion for health and social care in the Wigan Borough. It aims to give a voice to patients, their carers and members of the public, influence positive change to services and help meet the health and social care needs of the population.
We are recruiting up to 16 volunteers to form an Advisory Committee who will review issues relating to Healthwatch in detail and make recommendations regarding its independence, transparency and openness.
The Advisory Committee will review issues relating to Healthwatch in detail and makes recommendations regarding its independence, transparency and openness. It will play an important role in contributing to Wigan Borough Healthwatch CIC strategic direction, analysing information and data that is received through the day to day work of Healthwatch. It will make recommendations to the Board on areas of work on which to concentrate. Information will be supplied to the Advisory Committee via the Healthwatch team.
The Advisory Committee will be made up of Wigan Borough residents or those with a connection to the Borough. It will be formed of people from a range of backgrounds with a range of relevant skills and experience, recruited in an open and transparent way.
