Healthwatch York at York CVS is keen to recruit at least three new Steering Group members, including a new Chair.

Steering Group members play an essential role in setting our strategic direction and checking that we are on track to deliver our aims and objectives.

The coronavirus pandemic has highlighted and deepened existing health inequalities in our city, and reinforced our belief in our mission to put people at the heart of health and care in our city. But we need to find new ways of working, and amplifying the voices of those who struggle most to get the support they need.

With this in mind, we’re looking for enthusiastic new people to join our Steering Group and help shape our future. We’ll work together on a new strategic plan to put the spotlight on health inequalities, and to use people’s experiences to improve health and care services across York.

All Steering Group members need strategic vision, the ability to think creatively, good judgement and a willingness to speak their mind. As we want to bring additional skills and experience to the Group, we will be particularly pleased if your experience includes working with BAME communities, promoting equality and diversity, demonstrating impact, or PR, Marketing and Social Media. Above all, we want to recruit people who are as passionate about improving health and social care as we are!
