Non Executive Director vacancies at Western Isles Health Board

Published on 20 Mar 2013

NHS Western Isles is looking for two new Non Executive members to join its Board.

Two current members of the Board come to the end of their term on August 31, 2013, and the advertisement for new members was published on Friday (March 15).

If you are interested in a challenging and rewarding role which will have a lasting impact on the delivery of healthcare to the people served by NHS Western Isles, you should consider applying for the role of Non Executive Director.

NHS Western Isles Chair Neil Galbraith said: "As a Non Executive member of the Board, you will be expected to play a central role in guiding the strategies which address the health priorities and health care needs of the local population.

"The role of a Non Executive Director is as challenging as it is rewarding – and you will be offered the training you'll need to excel. The role takes up on average eight hours a week – in exchange for £7,332 (non-pensionable) a year plus reasonable travel and subsistence costs. Appointment will be for up to four years, with the possibility of re-appointment at the end of that period."

An application pack and full details on the appointments can be found at the public appointments website:

Completed applications must be received on or before Friday 12 April 2013.
