Community Promoter

Do you want to improve health and social care services in Surrey and ensure that local people have a say in how services that affect them are run?

  • Healthwatch Surrey listens to what local people have to say about the health and social care services they access.
  • We take their concerns to decision makers, to influence and improve how local services are run.
  • We keep an eye on changes to services and make sure that local people are consulted in decision making and in the design of local health and social care services.

We couldn’t do this without the help and support of our dedicated team of Community Promoters.
