Community Information Volunteer
Someone who can go out into local area and spread the word about Healthwatch and what we offer. This is an important role as you will both help promote Healthwatch East Sussex and gather local people’s views.
Sometimes we need help to find out what it’s really like for someone like you, to get the health and/or care information you need. Mystery shopper volunteers act as a real patient or client would. This would involve using the phone, internet or email, and in some cases, visiting agreed locations across East Sussex.
