The Voice of the Volunteer

We would like to hear the Voice of the Volunteer! 

Do you have a volunteering story to tell? How did you become involved in volunteering, what have been the benefits to you and did you experience any barriers that got in the way? Let us know at enquiries@cvsce.org.uk or complete our Volunteer survey at: 



External consultations

The Personal Care Record is a collaboration between Cheshire East Council and NHS Eastern Cheshire Clinical Commissioning Group.

It will enable patients to have control over how information about their health care is used.


So if a patient wants to update something about their health, they will be able to. Likewise, if they want to get hold of blood results, they can. When a medical practitioner makes an update on a patient’s record, the patient will  be able to check this without having to wait for a written letter.


The aim of the Personal Care Record is to put the patient or their carer in control.


So that they can get a better understanding of how best to move forward with the Personal Care Record they have commissioned a survey to better understand user experiences of health and wellbeing applications in Cheshire East, and find out what matters most to people. 


They would like to invite you to respond by using the following link https://www.research.net/r/CheshireEastPCRSurvey


At the end of the survey, there is an option for you to express an interest in attending further public engagement workshops. Interactive workshops for general health will be scheduled between December and February to understand the features people would benefit from most.


They would be grateful if you could respond to the survey by 5pm on Friday 16 November.
