Our volunteers are at the heart of what we do.
Whether you want to gain valuable work experience, help improve care in your community or learn new skills, there are lots of ways you can join us to make a real difference.
Our volunteers support us in many different ways. From speaking to local people to find out what they think about health and care, to using these views to influence those who run services, volunteers play an important role at Healthwatch. Healthwatch Milton Keynes relies on members of the public, who are passionate about Health and Social Care and talking to other people in their community, to help us achieve our mission.
Personal experience has given me a passionate belief that everyone in the UK should receive their rightful access to high quality healthcare. Volunteering for Healthwatch gives me that enjoyable buzz that I am, to some small degree, contributing to making that belief a reality
My volunteering role with Healthwatch Milton Keynes has exceeded my expectations; the access to a wide range of online training, a support network of volunteers, plus the respect shown to volunteers and the warm welcome. The volunteering role has been two way - I have been able to share my knowledge and skills and in return I have learnt more about Healthwatch and helped to gather the views of local people to continually improve Health and Social Care.
Volunteering with Healthwatch gives me the platform to ensure that the patient voice is properly represented
