The Board is the driving force behind Healthwatch Wiltshire's commitment to ensure the voices of adults, children and young people are heard by those who run, plan and regulate health and social care services in the county.

Applications are now open for two new members, one of which will lead the Board as Chair. 

Julie Brown, Acting Healthwatch Wiltshire Manager, said:

"We're looking for people who are willing to give their time and energy to Healthwatch and work to prioritise the issues that are most important to the people of Wiltshire.

"You might be a service user or carer, have a background in the NHS or social care services, or just have a keen interest in seeing services improved." 

As a Board member, you'll need to be able to make sense of complex information and be a good strategic thinker. 

You'll also need to be a strong team player, being both a good listener and be able to speak up on issues that you feel are important. 

As Chair, you’ll be working closely with the Healthwatch Wiltshire Manager to provide strategic guidance and will represent us at key meetings including Wiltshire Council’s Health and Wellbeing Board. 

If you would like an informal chat about the role with the Manager or one of the current Board members, please email info@healthwatchwiltshire.co.uk.  

The closing date for applications is 12pm on Friday 25 September
