Members wanted for Hwyel Dda Community Health Council
5:55pm Wednesday 28th August 2013 in News
HYWEL Dda Community Health Council is looking to recruit new members to represent patients’ rights and to strengthen the voice of local people in influencing patient care.
Community Health Councils (CHCs) are independent NHS watchdogs that scrutinise the operation of the health services in their areas and members represent the public interest.
They play an important role in influencing the way that health services are planned, delivered and improved in their area.
CHC members are local people who volunteer to 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.
Members are asked to give the equivalent of four to five days a month usually in short sessions of normally a few hours at a time. Out of pocket expenses such as travel are reimbursed.
People from all walks of life, of all ages, are being sought - the most important requirement is a genuine interest in improving health services for your community. Some key skills which would be useful include: an understanding of local health issues; being able to work in a team and with a diverse range of people.
