Tanya has been with Healthwatch Derbyshire as an Engagement Officer for 3 ½ years, and previously worked for Derbyshire LINk.
Tanya has a specific interest in ensuring meaningful public engagement with seldom heard groups, and has a number of sign language qualifications which support her work with the deaf community.
For the past 6 years Tanya has worked closely with learning disability groups gathering information about their experience of health and social care services, and working with service providers and commissioners to ensure that they take account of these experiences and use the information to influence the design and delivery of services. This extensive stakeholder relationship led to her being invited to become the Chair of The Good Health Group, which is a sub group to Derbyshire County’s Learning Disability Partnership Board.
