Do you have an interest in your local NHS? Do you want to improve local health services in your area? Do you have 3-5 days free per month to become a volunteer?
If you answered YES to the above questions, then please consider becoming a volunteer of the Community Health Councils (CHC) in Wales.
CHCs represent the independent voice of patients and the public who use the health service in Wales. They play an important role in influencing the way services are planned and delivered, to ensure the best possible health and wellbeing outcomes for all people in Wales.
CHC members are local volunteers who act as the eyes and ears of patients and the public, listening to their concerns and working with the health service to improve the quality of patient care.
We are looking for enthusiastic volunteers from communities across Wales to join us for this important service. We welcome: all ages, ethnic backgrounds, genders, people with disabilities and all religious affiliations. The most important requirement is a genuine interest in improving health services for your community. Some key skills which would be useful include: an interest in local health issues, being able to work in a team and with a diverse range of people plus good communication skills.
Successful candidates will be given full training and support to enable them to carry out their role and any ‘out of pocket’ expenses such as travel will be reimbursed.
Closing date for applications is June 13th 2016 and interviews will take place on w/c July 4th 2016. For further information about CHCs or to lodge an expression of interest please contact the Board of CHCs on:
