What is a Patient Representative?
At Central London Community Healthcare NHS Trust (CLCH), we are committed to working in partnership with patients and the public, to improve patient safety, patient experience and health outcomes; supporting people to live healthier lives in their communities.
That’s why we’re recruiting more Patient Representatives to help us listen to people who use and care about our services, understand their diverse health needs better, and focus on and respond to what matters to them.
Our Patient Representatives help us make improvements, develop new ideas and ensure patient voice is at the heart of everything we do. We need more Patient Representatives at CLCH and we want to ensure we have a diverse range of patient voices shaping our work and making a lasting impact on patient experience.
How can I become a Patient Representative?
To apply, please complete our application form. We know an online form isn’t for everyone so candidates can request a paper application or submit a video application if they would prefer.
We’ll review your application and if suitable, we’ll invite you for an informal interview to get to know more about your interests and experience.
If you have any questions about the application process, please get in touch at firstname.lastname@example.org
Young People and CLCH - Your Voice, Your Care
Young people can join us as Patient Representatives too! We are always looking to work closely with young people (14-18) who are in contact with our services to share ideas and improve the work we do.
At CLCH, we have a simple system for working with young people called TUNE IN which ensures your voice is heard and respected. You’ll be suitably rewarded for your time and it’s a great experience for young people interested in a career in health and social care.
We reach out to young people through the schools in our boroughs, and run regular workshops with young people to discuss all the different services we provide. If you would like to start attending our workshops or have any questions, please email email@example.com.
