Meet the Team

Hello I´m Edward Bebbington – Healthwatch Cumbria Representative


Edward worked in procurement in the defence and nuclear industries for most of his career before leaving work in 2006, after being diagnosed with juvenile(!) macular degeneration, which causes central vision loss. Since then he has volunteered for the Macular Society and other agencies to help others to cope with their visual impairment.

Edward’s experience of health services for the visually impaired in Cumbria has been varied over the years and he would like to help Healthwatch provide valuable imput to all the service providers in the field to ensure that patients receive all the help and support that is available.
