NHS Fife is looking for a new Non-Executive member to join its Board.
Non-Executive members play an important role in shaping healthcare, guiding the strategies which address health priorities, the needs of the local population, and the delivery of services.
The NHS Fife Board, as a board of governance, has responsibility for a wide range of issues such as strategic planning, resource allocation and health improvement.
Chair of NHS Fife, Tricia Marwick, said: “I am keen to build on the existing strong and focused team of Non-Executives on the NHS Fife Board with an individual who can contribute from a broadly-based background.
“While everyone has some knowledge of the NHS, many people will have specialist skills or talents or knowledge of the local community which could make a valuable contribution to the overall aims of the Board.
“I am particularly keen to hear from individuals who have an understanding of the issues that can impact on the health and social care experience of young people.
“You do not need to be a health expert or have experience of senior management or service on other Boards to apply, and if appointed you will receive support to develop your skills and to learn any new skills you may require.”
Anyone with the essential knowledge, personal qualities and skills to make a contribution to the Board and who is interested in a role which is challenging, rewarding and has a lasting impact on the delivery of healthcare to the people served by NHS Fife, is encouraged to apply.
The Non-Executive member will be recruited for a period of four years. Time commitments vary week-to-week, but on average the role will take up around eight hours per week and will include activities such as Board meetings, committee meetings, background reading and attending stakeholder events.
