Healthwatch WAM, your local champion for health and social care, is looking for new voluntary Board Members for its local leadership board.
As a Board Member, you will have a responsibility for contributing to policy and strategic direction, helping define goals and targets as well as evaluating performance. You would also represent Healthwatch WAM at key meetings and help influence change in services based on insight reports.
We are looking for people with relevant knowledge and experience and a commitment to want to see better outcomes in health and care for the residents of WAM. We particularly welcome applications from those with knowledge and experience in campaigning, grant bidding, marketing, PR and communications, and services for children and families.
It is not just strategic thinking though, you also need to be a team player, a good listener and be able to speak up on issues that you feel are important. In a diverse borough as WAM, we encourage applications from all ethnic groups and ages. If you are working, this role could give you useful voluntary experience.
Board Members receive no salary, but expenses are paid. The roles can expand to fill the time you have available. At a minimum, Board Members will be expected to be available 14 hours a month, including a 2-hour board meeting and likely representation on other health and social care boards across Windsor, Ascot and Maidenhead.
Healthwatch WAM works to get the best out of local health and social care services responding to your voice. From improving services today to helping shape better ones for tomorrow, we listen to your views and experiences and then influence decision-making.
