Healthwatch Manager - Tracey Allan-Jones
Tracey’s working background has been very varied, ranging from project and team management roles in large computing and telecommunications corporations, to setting up and running small internet-based businesses. She also volunteered in several roles in the community, including Parish Councillor, School Governor and fundraiser for the annual Village Show. Tracey joined Healthwatch Rutland as Office Manager in April 2016 and pretty much got involved in all activities from communication and marketing through events planning, signposting, engagement and outreach, and general office support. Much of the work of Healthwatch Rutland is undertaken by volunteers – residents of Rutland who feel passionately about making sure the county gets the best possible provision for health and social care. Together with our board and volunteers Tracey’s aim as Manager is to ensure that Rutland people’s voices are heard through the collection of data and experiences, and shared with commissioners and service providers to inform decision-making.
