Hamara HLC are currently recruiting a Patient Ambassador to work as part of the Leeds 9 Collaboration.

The Leeds 9 Collaboration of practices delivers General Practice services to a challenging local community many of whom often find it difficult to engage with health care services and certainly find it difficult to navigate the health care system.

We have identified particular needs across our large population of young people and those who have English as a second language and this role aims to develop systems and processes which helps us to improve how we interact with these patient groups.
