Seeking non-executive Whistleblowing Champion Board Member

Healthcare Improvement Scotland is looking to appoint a new non-executive member to join our board as a Whistleblowing Champion.

The introduction of this new, dedicated role is part of a wider strategy to further promote a culture of openness and transparency in NHS Scotland, where all staff feel confident to raise any concerns they may have in the knowledge that they will be supported and their concerns properly investigated.

Healthcare Improvement Scotland Chair, Carole Wilkinson said:

"Our board is committed to ensuring our organisation is a place where staff feel safe to speak up and I welcome the introduction of this new, dedicated role. We look forward to working with the individual to ensure our systems, processes and culture support our staff to raise concerns without fear or favour."

Why apply?
The NHS impacts on everyone's lives at one time or another and this could be your chance to get involved in improving, sustaining and protecting the health of the population.

What's involved?
This is a challenging, rewarding and worthwhile role which will give you the unique opportunity to help shape the future of the NHS and broaden your own skills and experience. In return, you will be paid £161.85 per day.

Can I apply?
We want to hear from people with a diverse range of skills, backgrounds and knowledge. You do not necessarily need to be a health expert or have previous experience of being on a Board. You do need to have a commitment to helping us improve the health and wellbeing of the people in Scotland. If this is you, we would like to hear from you.

If you are appointed you will receive training and support to develop your skills and to learn any new skills you may require.

The position is currently available to view on the public appointments website and applications are open until midday on Monday 12 August.
