Meet the Team

Hello I´m Robin Powell – Engagement Officer


Robin is the newest member to join the Healthwatch Cumbria team.  Robin was born in Carlisle and raised in Cockermouth so is very familiar with the geographical area of Cumbria and the issues that this can create for many. This role is quite different from his previous roles; previously Robin spent over 20 years in London working for the BBC World Service and the BBC Television Presentation. Although Robin enjoyed the buzz of live radio and television, he always knew he would return to Cumbria. He is excited by this latest challenge and looks forward to meeting and helping people in Cumbria to have their voices heard and championing the change of the health and social care services they need and use.
