Kate Jones - Chief Executive Officer

Chief Executive - Kate Jones

I live and work in the Rochdale borough and as a resident use many local health and social care services. I strongly believe that people are the experts of their own health conditions and feel that educating the public about future services and changes to come are vital in the new approach with patients.

My job is to provide leadership and direction to the Healthwatch Rochdale team. I work with the board of directors, staff team, volunteers and health and social care providers to provide an effective service delivered to a high standard, whilst ensuring Healthwatch Rochdale has a sustainable and growing future.
