HEALTHWATCH STOKE-ON-TRENT ADVISORY BOARD – CHAIR
Could you represent people who access health and social care services in Stoke-on-Trent? Are you passionate about maintaining and improving the quality of local services? Do you have the skills to help drive the development of Healthwatch Stoke-on-Trent?
Who we are looking for:
Ideally, you will live in Stoke-on-Trent, so you will have a good grasp of the area and health and social care issues.
You will have a keen interest in ensuring that services are fit for purpose so that the residents of Stoke-on-Trent get the right care and services when they need it.
You may be someone who accesses local services, a carer or an ex-health/social care professional who now wishes to contribute to shaping health and social care.
You will have some understanding and experience of service changes, perhaps you have asked “why” or “how” in the past and have been a voice in making change happen.
What we are looking for in a Chair:
The Chair of the Healthwatch Stoke-on-Trent Advisory Board will be required to commit to approximately 5 days per month, have the ability to attend strategic meetings ensuring the voice of Stoke-on-Trent people is heard and have the confidence to take part in external meetings where constructive challenge may be required.
