Your Voice in Health and Social Care (YVHSC) is an active participant in the community. We deliver messages to the relevant people by the most appropriate means available and we along with Healthwatch Hounslow work extensively to promote service access options and provide information and advice about local health and social care services.
As a Self-care and Prevention Volunteer, you will be based at a local GP surgery in the London Borough of Hounslow. You will put patients in touch with support groups for certain health conditions, promote health initiatives, collect patient experiences, help to reduce a patient’s social isolation and build up levels of confidence about self-care.
People can often take care of themselves when they have common symptoms such as sore throats, coughs etc., for example by using over-the-counter medicines. The same is true for long-term conditions where people often self-manage without intervention from a health professional.
Empowering people with the confidence and information to look after themselves when they can, and visit the GP when they need to, gives people greater control of their own health and encourages healthy behaviours that help prevent ill health in the long-term.
