Meet the Team

Hello I´m Richard Hardiman – Healthwatch Cumbria Representative


I joined the team as a Representative in August 2017 with the intention of promoting better conditions and services for patients in N.H.S facilities in Cumbria.

I am retired after working in industry for over 45 years covering management and training departments, of which I was a member of the institute of training officers.

My interests include membership of my local GP patient panel, walking on the fells, gardening, Do it Yourself projects, converted cycles to Electric and holidays. Early into my retirement I taught driving as an hobby and helped 22 people age between 17 – 56 pass 1st time!
