Be our eyes and ears on care in Cambridgeshire

Cambridgeshire volunteers and is helping us with a new project to look at how health and care services communicate with people who have a sensory loss.

Lizzie’s told us “I am a service user myself and have disabilities so I rely on good healthcare and support, such as having a good relationship with the GP.”

We need your help to talk to more people about Healthwatch and find out what care is like for them. Our Community Listener volunteers are people like you – you know the place you live and the people in your community.

  • You will listen to people who have used local health or care services. This may be your family, neighbours and friends, or people you meet within your local networks.
  • You may visit local groups, chat with people and record what they have to say.

We will give you training and support, as well as paying agreed out of pocket expenses.

As a Community Listener, you could also train to take part in our visits to local health or care services. We have a legal right to visit places that provide publicly funded health or care services, to see and hear how people experience care. In the last year, we have visited Addenbrooke’s and Hinchingbrooke Hospitals.
