Come on Board – NHS Forth Valley seeks two new Board members

NHS Forth Valley is seeking two new Non-Executive members to join its Board. As well as  a strong commitment to improving the health of local people they are also particularly keen to encourage applications from people  with previous clinical experience or financial skills.

Chair of NHS Forth Valley, Janie McCusker, said: “This is a great opportunity to join the Health Board as we develop our services in response to the ongoing pandemic and take forward innovative plans for the future. These are challenging and rewarding roles and we are looking for people from all walks of life to help us prepare for the challenges and opportunities which lie ahead.

“You don’t need to be a health expert or to have experience of the NHS as we are looking for people with a diverse range of experience, knowledge and skills.  However, we would be particularly keen to hear from individuals with experience of delivering community health services and those with a financial background to complement the skills of existing Board members.”

“We are also keen to encourage people who may not have thought of being a Board member before to consider applying as it’s a great development opportunity and you will have access to any training and support required to help you make a strong contribution.

The post will take up around eight hours a week and last for up to four years in the first instance, with a remuneration of £8,842 a year. More information on these roles and details of how to apply can be found at the current vacancies section of the public appointments website:
