Enter and View Volunteers
Healthwatch has the right to Enter and View health and social care services in order to get a picture of how local services are delivered. This does not include services for people under 18.
We are in the process of developing our Enter and View team and are looking for volunteers who would like to train to carry out Enter and View visits. Enter and View Volunteers will need to undergo training and obtain a DBS (Disclosure Barring Service).
