How volunteering with us helped Tanzi secure her university place


Congratulations to Tanzi, our Young Healthwatch Northamptonshire Chair, who has been a volunteer with us for four years.

Tanzi joined us as she wanted to make a difference to her local community but also wanted a career in the NHS. She recently sat her A levels and achieved 3 A’s. For Tanzi, this now means that she is able to go to University to study medicine so that she can continue on her path to a career in the NHS.

Here is what Tanzi had to say: 

"I have been a part of Young Healthwatch for 4 years now. I'm heading off to university this September to study medicine and I wanted to thank Young Healthwatch for all the skills I gained while volunteering - which I was able to put into my personal statement. The hospital visits allowed me to have further insight into hospitals and patient experience. Furthermore, as a group we always try our best to be inclusive so during interviews I felt at ease discussing needs of different types of patients and during role play I could easily converse due to my experience with speaking to the public. I am really glad I was able to develop these skills with Young Healthwatch and it has helped me get to where I am today."
