Please be aware that the coronavirus situation is rapidly changing, so information and advice is continually being updated. Take advice from official sources only. We have listed below links to Coronavirus advice and updates from a range of both local and national organisations, plus information in a variety of formats. For the most trusted sources of up-to-date information go to:
The Government website- Information on how to protect yourself and others, steps communities should be taking, and updates on UK cases
The NHS website- Explaining the symptoms of coronavirus, how to avoid catching and spreading it, and advice for people at high risk
We are always looking for people to volunteer with us. You could work on a specific project or have a more regular ongoing involvement. We have something to suit all interests and availability.
As an independent consumer champion for health and social care, Healthwatch Stockton gives local people a voice to improve, shape and get the best from health and social care services by empowering people and communities. Join our growing team of volunteers and you can help us improve local health and social care services across Stockton.
By becoming a member you are asking us to keep you informed about our activities. This includes receiving the Healthwatch e-bulletin. We hope that you will choose to get more involved in things which are of particular interest to you but the extent of your involvement is entirely up to you.
Any voluntary, community or not for profit organisation or group who can demonstrate charitable or social objectives can join Healthwatch. You do not need to have charitable status or be a constituted group to be a member. To ensure Healthwatch remains independent, statutory local authority and NHS organisations involved in commissioning or providing health and social care services are ineligible for membership.
