Membership of Healthwatch Devon
Being a member of Healthwatch Devon means you belong to the only independent consumer champion for all health and social care.
Membership is open to any individual or organisation in Devon who would like to see better health and social care services influenced by public involvement.
Being a member gives you the opportunity to become actively involved in championing the rights of service users and holding providers to account.
You will have the right to vote for Healthwatch Devon board members or to stand for election yourself. You will also have the opportunity to become an accredited volunteer, to speak and act in the name of Healthwatch Devon.
Unlike any other organisation, Healthwatch Devon has statutory powers to hold providers to account and has access to key decision making bodies such as the Health and Well-being Board. Through Healthwatch England, we can feed in to national, as well as local policy.
We are independent, inclusive, and with a strong membership, can be powerful.
