Appointment to North Wales Community Health Council, Third Sector Member Nominations

Posted on October 3, 2018

  • Are you currently part of a third sector (voluntary) organisation in the Conwy area? (You may be a volunteer, on the board, a member of staff or a carer)
  • Would you like to make a positive difference and influence local health services for the benefit of local people?

The Welsh Assembly Government is seeking to appoint volunteer members to the North Wales CHC. CHCs are the public’s independent ‘watchdog’ of the National Health Service in Wales. They represent the public interest and play an important role in influencing the way that health services are planned, delivered and improved.
CHC members are volunteers and their role is 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. The North Wales Community Health Council was established from 1 April 2010 with the following Local Committees:

Conwy, Denbighshire, Flintshire, Gwynedd, Wrexham and Ynys Môn.

As a Member of the CHC you will be expected to commit between 21 and 35 hours per month, arrangements of which can be agreed between you and the CHC. Members are not paid but are able to claim remuneration costs and expenses. Please note, you must be a trustee, employee or volunteer with a third sector organisation operating in the Local Committee (local authority) area concerned.

Each Local Committee will have three third sector places, nominated by the relevant County Voluntary Council. The CHC is looking for people from all walks of life – 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 and understanding of local health issues; being able to work in a team and with a diverse range of people; and an ability to listen to others and exchange views.

For more information please contact: wendyjones@cvsc.org.uk

This will enable you to apply to be nominated. You will receive an application pack and application form.
