Jo Wittels, a former personal injury solicitor, joined our Local Leadership Board in June. Find out more about our Board members on our website: www.healthwatchwiltshire.co.uk/our-board

Healthwatch Wiltshire is looking for people with a passion for health and social care services to join its Local Leadership Board.

The Board is the driving force behind Healthwatch Wiltshire’s commitment to ensure the voices of adults, children and young people are heard by those who run, plan and regulate health and social care services in the county.

Applications are open to anyone who wants to see services meet the needs of those who use them.

Local Leadership Board Chair, Rob Jefferson said: “We’re looking for people who are willing to give their time and energy to Healthwatch and work to prioritise the issues that are most important to the people of Wiltshire.

“You might be a service user, have a background in the NHS or social care services, or just have a keen interest in seeing services improved.”

As a Board member, you’ll be representing Healthwatch Wiltshire at key meetings so you’ll need to be able to make sense of complex information and be a good strategic thinker.

You’ll also need to be a strong team player, being both a good listener and be able to speak up on issues that you feel are important.

For more information on the role, and to apply, please visit the Healthwatch Wiltshire website. All applications must be received by 12 noon on Tuesday 15 October.

If you would like an informal chat about the role with one of the current board members, please email info@healthwatchwiltshire.co.uk

More information about the Local Leadership Board is available at: www.healthwatchwiltshire.co.uk/our-board
