Friday, 10 January, 2020

Healthwatch Redbridge are looking to recruit 4-5 Enter & View volunteers.

What is Enter and View?

The Enter and View programme is an important part of the way a Healthwatch works. Healthwatch representatives can visit and report on premises where health and social care services are being used such as hospitals, GP Practices and care homes for example.

The people they need

Healthwatch needs people who can talk with users and take note of what is happening in places where problems have been reported, or where examples of interesting or good practice can be made known and publicised.

Healthwatch wants to attract a diverse group of people who would like to work for users and patients in this way, connect with them and represent their views. You will need some knowledge of health and social care services either from work, volunteering, or personal experience. Training and support will be given.


Applicants who have been successfully shortlisted, will be invited to an interview. This will be a good opportunity for the applicants to find out more about the role and for Healthwatch to assess whether the applicant is suitable for the role. These will take place on Monday 10th February or Thursday 13th February.


Applicants will need to attend and complete the training session that will take place Thursday 27th February.     

Lunch will be provided. All information will be provided in printed format complete with a folder and any access requirements will need to be known prior to the session. We can provide information on USB sticks, large print and Easy Read at the present time.

DBS check needed

All successful applicants must undergo a Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check, and must agree to have their names published as Healthwatch Authorised Representatives.

Expenses and payment

Reasonable out of pocket expenses can be claimed.

Application forms must be returned by Midnight on Sunday 2nd February.
