The unsung heroes of NHS Hull CCG’s Engagement Team are our Ambassadors.
Our Ambassadors are members of the public who have volunteered to get involved in supporting the CCG’s engagement and public involvement work. Ambassadors meet regularly and are able to actively guide the CCG on appropriate approaches to engagement and they work tirelessly within their local communities and other networks to signpost people into health-related services and promote involvement in local engagement activities and consultations. They also support the recruitment of new members through attendance at a number of public events and support the organisation in the delivery of the engagement work by helping to undertake surveys, support focus groups and other engagement events..
NHS Hull CCG is actively seeking new recruits. No formal knowledge of the NHS is necessary, just a keen interest in health and promoting healthy lifestyles and a bit of spare time; it is down to the individual Ambassador how much they get involved. The role is undertaken on a voluntary basis but appropriate expenses, such as travel, are reimbursed. Ambassadors are also DBS checked and successful applicants receive additional training in support of their new role.
