Patients Association Ambassadors
Volunteering with the Patients Association

Ambassadors are volunteers who are an invaluable support in helping us 'listen to patients and speak up for change'.

Ambassadors are the local ‘eyes and ears’ of the Patients Association keeping us informed of what’s happening on the ground. Many put their experiences to use by contributing their substantial local knowledge to the national picture, spreading the word locally and helping other patients and carers to do the same.

We are looking for a range of people who are interested in patients or carers, their experiences and health and social care. 
Who can be an Ambassador? Anyone with enthusiasm, an interest in health and social care who wants to help make a difference for patients and carers across the country!

We are looking for a range of skills and experiences to help us with the wide variety of work we do. Being a volunteer Ambassador could be as wide ranging as holding an information stand in your local hospital, library or GP surgery, to talking to patients about their experiences on a ward as part of a project. Ambassadors also have the opportunity to develop their own skills, and can train to be a Community Reporter, using a simple flip camera to record peoples stories about their health and social care. 

What’s ahead? We are expanding our work with local hospitals across the country, so there are plenty of opportunities to get involved in projects to improve patient and carer experiences. We will be working with Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs), GP practices as well as hospitals.
Interested? Download the application pack here, and we look forward to hearing from you!
