Job description

Are you passionate about patient and public engagement, effecting system change, and improving services?  Are you confident to lead engagement and research, and tell the story of the findings to decision-makers?  Are you a great project manager, who is excited by the opportunity to lead the delivery of a user-led Healthwatch?  If so, we’d love to work with you in order to improve the experiences of people using health and social care services in Barnet.

This is an exciting opportunity for someone with lived experience of disability (which could include a long term condition or mental health issue) to lead a small team in the delivery of Barnet’s statutory Healthwatch function.

As Manager, you will have a fundamental role in leading staff and volunteers, and ensuring users, patients and external stakeholders are involved in shaping the future of healthcare services in the Borough. Local people are at the heart of everything we do, and you will lead and guide the team to ensure that patients and users are heard, their experiences shared, and their voices amplified, creating change and improving services for all.

In return for your commitment to the cause, you will become part of a friendly and supportive team, working within a focused but flexible culture, where diversity is valued and you can bring your whole self to work.  You’ll be based in our Colindale office, and able to attend meetings across Barnet, but with extensive opportunities for home working.

About Healthwatch

The Health and Social Care Act 2012 required each local authority area to set up a Healthwatch organisation. Healthwatch gives give people a powerful voice both locally and nationally. At a local level, Healthwatch Barnet works to help people get the best from their health and social care services, whether it's improving them today, or helping to shape them for tomorrow. Healthwatch Barnet is about local voices being able to influence the delivery and design of their services, not just for the people who use them, but anyone who might need to use them in future.

Healthwatch Barnet transferred to Inclusion Barnet on 1st April 2020. It is commissioned by the London Borough of Barnet to provide the following 6 key functions:

  • Gather views and understand the experiences of patients and the public.
  • Make people’s views known.
  • Promote and support the involvement of people in the commissioning and provision of local care services and how they are scrutinised.
  • Recommend investigation or special review of services via Healthwatch England or directly to the Care Quality Commission (CQC).
  • Provide advice and information (signposting) about access to services and support for making informed choices
  • Making the views and experiences of local people known to Healthwatch England (and to other local Healthwatch organisations) and providing a steer to help it carry out its role as national champion.

About Inclusion Barnet

Inclusion Barnet is a thriving peer-led charity based in North West London. We are a friendly, supportive and inclusive team.  We believe in the power of experience and this is demonstrated by all our services being led, developed and delivered by people with lived experience of disability, including mental health issues and long-term conditions. We believe that learning to use our lived experience for social change is a skill. We have become experts in harnessing the lived experience of our staff, members, volunteers and people who use our services to design and deliver higher quality, more person-centred services. We believe that this benefits both disabled people and society more widely.
