Previously located at 104 – 106 Drake Street, the relocation coincides with the recruitment of a new community engagement project worker and the return of Information, Advice & Signposting Surgeries.
Healthwatch Rochdale have worked remotely throughout the pandemic to provide local people with the information & advice they need on NHS & care services, as well as using people’s experiences to shape & influence those services.
The new office space will allow the Healthwatch team to work together more collaboratively and provide a place for Healthwatch volunteers to come and work with the staff team.
Kate Jones, Healthwatch Rochdale CEO, said:
“We have been wanting a return to the office for some time but have been working within government guidelines to work from home. As we come out of the pandemic the move to The Esplanade is the beginning of a new & exciting period for Healthwatch Rochdale. We are looking forward to being back together as a team and getting out in the community speaking face to face with local people. We have recently recruited a new Chair of the Board & a Community Engagement Project Worker and are currently holding our annual review. We are confident that the next 12 months will be one of are our most impactful”
