NHS Fife is looking for four new members to join its Board. As a non-executive member of the Board, you will play a central role in guiding the strategies which address the health priorities and health care needs of the population and which will have a lasting impact on the delivery of healthcare in local communities across the area served by NHS Fife.
NHS Fife delivers a diverse range of health services and is committed to building on and improving these services with the involvement and support of the public and our partners. Whilst our clinical institutions continue to play a key role in the delivery of healthcare, the integration of adult health and social care services will strengthen the focus on community care.
Appointment can be for up to 4 years, with the possibility of re-appointment subject to evidence of effective performance and to satisfying the requirements of the person specification for the role at the time of re-appointment.
The roles are both challenging and rewarding, and require a commitment of around 8 hours a week. A payment of £8,008 (non-pensionable) a year is offered plus reasonable travel and subsistence costs, dependent-carer expenses and support and training required to help carry out your duties effectively.
