Healthwatch Sandwell Advisory Board Chair Role

Healthwatch Sandwell is the independent champion for local people’s voices in health and social care in Sandwell, and it is delivered by Engaging Communities Solutions CIC (ECS). Healthwatch, was established with the primary aim of improving the services offered to local people in the areas of NHS health care, adult, and children’s social care by collecting their stories of the experiences of receiving care and support then taking these to the decision-makers to seek to influence the improvement of services locally.

We are looking to recruit Advisory Board Chair, who share our passion for developing Healthwatch Sandwell as the ‘independent champion’ for NHS, public health and adult and children’s social care services across the County. You will need drive, energy and enthusiasm and the ability to play a leading role in maintaining our vision.

You will need to have experience of organisational development, a knowledge of health and social care landscape, effective cross-sector partnership working with voluntary and community organisations and the ability to involve local people.

So, if you want to play a leading part in shaping the future of a vital organisation which in turn seeks to influence and improve health care and social care services across Sandwell, then we’d be delighted to hear from you.

If you wish to informally discuss the role, please contact Alexia Farmer, Manager, Healthwatch Sandwell.
