Are you Interested in Becoming a Practice Health Champion?
Oakwood Lane Medical Practice is currently inviting patients to join the team as volunteer Practice Health Champions. This is an exciting new role for anyone with a passion for health and a keen interest in finding ways to help meet the needs of patients and the wider community. Working alongside staff at the practice, this is a fantastic opportunity to develop new initiatives around wellbeing and improve the uptake of existing services in the area.
Ahead of starting the role, Practice Health Champions are asked to attend a free two-day workshop which provides the skills and knowledge required for the role. The workshops are also a chance to meet with other Champions and Practice staff and begin to think about what you’d like to work on together.
