(Watch this video and decide)

It’s a tremendous opportunity to contribute to the development of health services and help shape the strategic direction of health and social care provision to more than 1.2 million people in the communities served by our Board.

Over the next few months there will be three vacancies on the board of the largest single health authority in the UK and if you’re interested we’d love to hear from you.

All non-executive board directors are appointed by the Health Secretary but if you would like to talk to us informally at this stage and find out more about the commitment, opportunity and expectations of being a board member then we’d love to hear from you.

NHSGGC Chairman John Brown said: “We’re looking for people from all walks of life who are interested in health. Some of our members bring experience from their own respective area of expertise, such as social work or as community workers. Others have a financial or education background. Some members are retired healthcare professionals or have held senior civil servant positions. We’ve also benefited from the experience of retired chartered accountants and retired church leaders.

"There’s plenty of support to bring new board members up to speed with the complexities of NHSGGC – an organisation which employs 38,000 staff and delivers all aspects of community and hospital healthcare. It’s a great ongoing development opportunity to be part of one of the most important public sector organisations in Scotland.”

The time commitment required can vary, but is usually about four days a month and for this commitment, you would receive circa £8,500 a year and essential travel expenses are covered.
