Healthwatch Cornwall, the independent people’s champion for health and social care, are looking to recruit new Directors to the Healthwatch Cornwall Board, and new Trustees to our new associated charity, Trestadow.

We are keen to ensure that our strategic leaders are representative of all sections of the community and the people of Cornwall, and we especially welcome applications from those from a black and minority ethnic background, those with a physical disability or are neuro-diverse, and working age people as we are currently under-represented in these areas.

Chair – Healthwatch Cornwall

This is likely to involve a commitment of approximately 3 days per month and has an honorarium attached of £5,000 pa in recognition of this time.

In addition to the normal duties of a Director, the Chair will supervise the CEO to ensure communication flow between the operational team and the board of directors and ensure strategic direction.

The role will involve representing Healthwatch Cornwall at public events, while also explaining Healthwatch England goals and direction to local organisations via contribution to networks and seminars.

An awareness of financial statements and budgets is crucial. The chair role also acts as Chair of the Finance Sub-Committee.
