Can you help us improve the NHS and care services in Camden?
We are looking for people of all ages who live and/or work/study in the London Borough of Camden who have time and energy to devote to developing the work of our local Healthwatch.
Currently COVID-19 is a high priority, but we are also looking forward beyond COVID to ensure all health and social care needs are addressed both as the pandemic continues and into the future.
What are we looking for?
Our current Trustee team has skills in care of the elderly, the young, LGBTQ+, under-represented community groups, medicine, pharmacy and housing. We particularly seek new Trustees with expertise in finance and accountancy, human resources and public relations.
If you don’t have these particular skills, but think you have something special to offer, we would still be keen to hear from you.
You would join our current group of 7 trustees who bring a diverse range of skills and experience of working within diverse teams. We all share a passion for ensuring that the voices of all Camden residents are heard in the planning and conduct of health and social care within the borough.
Who are we?
Healthwatch Camden is a statutory organisation funded by the local authority and supplements this with funding from external sources. The role of Trustees is voluntary.
The Trustee Board of Healthwatch Camden oversees, guides and ensures the good governance of the day to day running of the organisation which is led by a full time paid Director and a team of 4 full and part-time staff. A number of local volunteers help us when needed.
We seek to represent and advocate for all Camden residents whatever their age, ethnicity, cultural or health and social backgrounds. Much of our work involves canvassing their views and making these known to local health and social care providers as well as the local authority.
If you would like an informal discussion of the role, please e-mail your expression of interest and telephone number at firstname.lastname@example.org, and we will call you.
How do I apply?
Please submit a two-page CV and covering letter by Friday 29th January to Matthew.Parris@healthwatchcamden.co.uk.
We would like to understand why you are interested in the role and what you feel you can contribute to our organisation. Please explain how you meet the requirements of the role as stated in the Role Description and also complete the equal opportunities monitoring form.
