Independent Chair & Directors

Deadline: Friday 8th October

We work to get the best out of local health and social care services responding to local voices. From improving services today to helping shape better ones for tomorrow, we gather, analyse and act upon the feedback provided by patients and the public in our city, and use this to influence decision-making and drive improvement in local Health and Social Care Services. This includes services like GPs, pharmacists, hospitals, dentists, care homes and community-based care.

Our organisation is going from strength to strength, with our work resulting in more and more positive change for people who live and work in Brighton and Hove. We are currently seeking to recruit Directors to join our existing Board. You will need to be a team player and strategic thinker, with good communication and interpersonal skills, and be able to speak up on behalf of Healthwatch on issues that are important. To complement the experience of our current Board, we would particularly welcome applications from those with a financial background, knowledge, and experience in public relations and communications. However, do not be deterred from applying if you do not possess these specialisms.

In addition to the recruitment of new Directors, our current Chair will end her term in 2021. Building on the achievements and progress to date, we wish to appoint a new Chair who can continue the growth and success of Healthwatch Brighton and Hove. We are in exciting and challenging times with Covid still with us, health and care services trying to recover, a Health and Care Bill on the horizon and funding for social care to be resolved. This is an ideal time for a Chair to shape the next era of Healthwatch Brighton and Hove. You will have knowledge of the health and care agenda, strategic vision, and a passion for championing users views and experience, along with excellent leadership and communication skills and experience of leading a Board.

Board members represent Brighton & Hove residents, and we encourage applications from all sections of our diverse community. 

All positions are voluntary and you can find out more downloading the Role Description and Person Spec for the roles below. You can also talk to the current Chair, Fran McCabe, who can be contacted on frances.mccabe@icloud.com.
