Along with the change in the weather have come some changes to the Healthwatch Wandsworth team. July saw the departure of our previous manager, Ambra Caruso, who has been with Healthwatch since its inception back in April 2012. Ambra left Healthwatch to take up a project management position with the NHS and we'd like to wish her all the best in her new role.
Sarah Cook replaces Ambra as Healthwatch Wandsworth Manager from the end of September 2016 and we're very much looking forward to working with her. Sarah comes from Macmillan Cancer Support where she worked organising a specialist information outreach service. She has a background working in health related charities and enjoyed focusing on healthcare during her recent postgraduate studies.
Sarah started working with Healthwatch in January as a Policy, Information and Outreach Volunteer. She says, "I’m really pleased to be joining the team full time. I am looking forward to meeting everyone involved and working with the team to help ensure residents have a voice in health and social care strategies and policies".
