We are always looking for people to tell us about their story and experiences but we also occasionally have opportunities to get more fully involved in shaping future services across Essex. These are open to you if you live or work in Essex and are keen to volunteer with us. You can give as much or as little of your time as you want, but any time you can give will make a difference.
From time to time we recruit for specific opportunities to represent voice of people in Essex as services are re-designed.
These roles can involve:
- Attending meetings with NHS managers and clinical staff
- Inputting to and challenging new proposals for services
- Reviewing leaflets and information given out by the NHS
- Engaging with other patients to feed their experiences back alongside your own
