Part Time

Healthwatch Nottingham and Nottinghamshire will be established in April 2018, when the two separate Boards of Healthwatch Nottingham and Healthwatch Nottinghamshire amalgamate.

The primary aim of Healthwatch is to improve the services offered to local people in the areas of health, adult and children’s social care in conjunction with a wide range of partners and stakeholders.  This in itself presents the organisation with some exciting challenges.

We are therefore looking for someone of the highest calibre to become Chair of the combined Healthwatch Board, who shares our passion for developing  Healthwatch Nottingham and Nottinghamshire as the independent ‘consumer champion’ for NHS, public health and  adult and children’s social care services across both the City and County. You will need immense amounts of drive, energy and enthusiasm and the ability to play a leading role in maintaining our vision.

You may not have a background in health or social care but you will certainly be able to demonstrate that you have the knowledge, experience, skills and abilities required and that you can deliver exceptional results through effective leadership of your Board and great team work.

The role of the Chair in maintaining strong working relationships with key stakeholders is essential, whilst also maintaining the independence of Healthwatch and its ability to hold the system to account on behalf of the public.

So if you want to play a leading part in shaping the future of a vital organisation, then we’d be delighted to hear from you.
