Healthwatch Solihull is the consumer champion for health and social care for adults, children and young people. Our role is to enable people to feedback their views and experiences of the health and social care services they receive and for their input to influence how services are planned and delivered in the future.
We have a simple ambition, to make health and social care services better for the people who use them in Solihull. We are here to understand the needs, experience and concerns of people who use services and speak out on their behalf.
Any current vacancies are listed below.
Currently Recruiting Healthwatch Solihull Advisory Board Members
Healthwatch Solihull Board Members (resident of Solihull)
Healthwatch Solihull is the independent consumer champion for health and social care in your local area, delivered by Engaging Communities. Our job is to argue for the consumer interests of those using health and social care services across the Borough, and give local people an opportunity to speak out about their concerns and health care priorities.
We are looking to recruit up to 4 individuals to sit on the Advisory Board who share our passion for developing Healthwatch Solihull as the ‘consumer champion’ for NHS, public health and adult and children’s social care services across the Borough. You will need drive, energy and enthusiasm and the ability to play a leading role in maintaining our vision.
It would be useful to have a background in health or social care, though this is not essential, but you will certainly be able to demonstrate that you have the knowledge, experience, skills and abilities required in ensuring the board plays a key role in improving health and social care services in Solihull. The role of a board member will be to be an ambassador and champion for those using health and social care services and maintaining the independence of Healthwatch and its ability to hold the system to account on behalf of the public.
So, if you want to play a leading part in shaping the future of a vital organisation, then we’d be delighted to hear from you.
