CHC members are local volunteers who act as the eyes and ears of patients and the public, visiting hospitals, listening to patient concerns and working with the health service to improve the quality of patient care.

Successful candidates will be given training and support to enable them to carry out their role and any ‘out of pocket’ expenses such as travel will be reimbursed.
