Your spotlight on local services

Healthwatch Tameside Board


We are looking for new board members.
Could you represent your community in Tameside?

The Healthwatch Tameside board is the group of people who help to make sure that Healthwatch Tameside is run properly. The board is also responsible for making sure we are representative of local people and our work is based on the feedback and views of local people.

Do you need any special knowledge?  
No. All new board members complete an induction programme, which helps them to understand what Healthwatch Tameside is expected to do and what their role on the board is. You just need to be passionate about wanting good quality health and care services for people in Tameside.
We try to get a balance of people who know the health and care system and people who understand our local communities.

What would you be expected to do?

  • Take part in board meetings, once every two or three months.
  • Read any papers before the meetings and ask for more information if you need it.
  • Take part in board training and development activities.
  • Act as an ambassador for Healthwatch Tameside. Always act in the best interests of Healthwatch.

The role is voluntary, however reasonable expenses will be reimbursed in line with good practice in the community and voluntary sector.

How to apply
There is an information pack available, which includes an ‘Expression of Interest’ form. This must be completed and returned by 10 January 2020.
If you would like to find out more, please give us a call on 0161 667 2526, or email: info@healthwatchtameside.co.uk
