Lizzie's Story

17/01/2017

Lizzie with her horseI am Lizzie and have been volunteering with Healthwatch Cambridgeshire as a Research Volunteer for a few years. I enjoy it as it is looking at health care services and patients’ experiences.

After gaining a MSc, I worked in the NHS as a medical laboratory assistant in two hospitals and did some research work. I became interested in researching for healthcare specifically and would like to carry on using my skills.

I believe in promoting good healthcare and helping the services and patients to achieve this. I enjoy doing literature reviews, presenting information, constructing surveys and undertaking analysis on the Accessible Information Standards, which should support people with communication needs such as disabled people.

I am a service user myself and have disabilities so I rely on good healthcare and support, such as having a good relationship with the GP, so appreciate the importance of this.

I am an avid horse rider and have included some photos because I think healthcare is about enabling people to enjoy their lives and taking opportunities.
