Job Description

We are looking for Advisory Board Members who would be committed to help influence Haringey’s health and social care direction for the better.

Healthwatch Haringey is the independent ‘people’s champion’ for health and social care in the London Borough of Haringey, and part of the wider national Healthwatch network. Healthwatch Haringey was set up as part of the Health and Social Care Act 2012, which placed a requirement on every Local Authority in England to have an independent Healthwatch.  

We actively seek out the views of the public and patients on all matters relating to health and social care in Haringey, e.g. their experience in hospital, interim care, at the GP, or dentist, and we collate these together to produce impact statements and reports. We use this evidence to influence the way health and social care services are designed, delivered, and improved.

We are looking for Advisory Board Members who would be committed to help influence Haringey’s health and social care direction for the better.

While you might not have a background in health or social care, we are looking for people with local lived experience and knowledge, and a commitment to improving local healthcare and social care services. 

You will help to decide on our priorities, ensure our service is well run, help us to continue to build constructive relationships with key stakeholders and be a voice for your local community.

We welcome applications from anyone who lives, works or is registered with a GP in Haringey. We absolutely welcome and encourage applications from ALL sections of the community including those from minority ethnic communities, disabled people, every gender, every age group (over 18), and all socio-economic groups. You would be representing all Haringey residents, and it is essential we make sure every voice is heard.
