Healthwatch Oldham and Healthwatch Tameside are working in partnership to advertise two vacancies.
Healthwatch Officer – fixed term 12 months (30 hours per week)
We are seeking an enthusiastic, community focused officer to undertake a range of activities across both Tameside and Oldham. These will include community outreach, working with volunteers, providing some information signposting and helping people who are making a complaint about NHS care. It will provide opportunities to help local people to have their voices heard through the changes that lie ahead in health and social care. This is a very varied role and every day will bring new opportunities and challenges for the post holder. If you have an understanding of health, care and working with people why not apply for this exciting new role?
