‘Closes 03rd February’

The Department of Health is seeking to appoint a Non-Executive Chair to the Patient Client Council (PCC 1/22)

This is an exceptional opportunity to share your talents and expertise to make a positive difference to the lives of people in Northern Ireland.

The PCC was established by the Health and Social Care (Reform) Act (NI) 2009 to ensure that the ‘voice of patients, clients, carers and communities is valued, heard and acted upon’ in the development of policy on, and provision of, Health and Social Care services. This statutory role gives the PCC a unique place within the Health and Social Care sector in Northern Ireland. At this time, not only of major change, but now of unprecedented and unexpected pressures on the whole Health and Social Care (HSC) system, it is vital to maintain focus on listening to, and respecting the voices of, patients and service users; and on ensuring that resources are deployed to the best effect possible.

Applicants for this position must demonstrate on their application form, and if invited for interview, how they meet the following essential criteria:  Leadership; Corporate Governance and Accountability, Performance Management, Change Management; and Collaborative Working.

The deadline for receipt of applications is 12:00 noon GMT Friday 03 February 2023.  Late applications will not be accepted.
