Being an Engagement Champion and upcoming training dates

Posted on

Engagement Champions get involved in giving local people an opportunity to talk about the health services of the future.

When the NHS locally are planning major changes to those services they use Engagement Champions to help them to reach into the heart of local communities so they can really hear what is being said by local people.  Especially those people who don’t often have the chance to ‘have their say’.

If you think you could be an Engagement Champion contact Megan Vickery to find out more on 01422 43109 or email megan.vickery@cvac.org.uk
