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 now open for two new members, one of which will take on the role of Deputy Chair of the Board.

Alan Mitchell, Healthwatch Wiltshire Chair, 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 or carer, 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 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.

As Deputy Chair, you’ll be working closely with the Chair and the Healthwatch Wiltshire Manager to attend multi-agency health and care meetings on behalf of the Board and chair meetings in the absence of the Chair.

Stacey Sims, Healthwatch Wiltshire Manager, said: “As members of the Healthwatch Wiltshire team, our volunteers and board members are our ambassadors and use every opportunity to promote our work, share our successes, raise our profile and hear more experiences of health and care. We’re looking forward to welcoming some new faces to our team.”

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

The closing date for applications is 12pm on 10 March 2022. Interviews will be held on 16 March 2022.
