Scotland’s health and social care systems impact on everyone’s lives at one time or another, and this could be your chance to get involved in improving the ways in which the public engages with these important services.


Healthcare Improvement Scotland has specific responsibilities, along with partner organisations, to support health and care services improve the ways they engage with the public. The Scottish Health Council is part of Healthcare Improvement Scotland and takes forward these responsibilities. We are looking for three new Members to join the Scottish Health Council Committee. These are challenging, rewarding and worthwhile roles that will give you the unique opportunity to help ensure future health and care services are informed and improved by quality engagement with the Scottish public, while also broadening your own skills and experience.

Can I apply?

Previous experience of non-executive positions is not required, nor is experience gained within health or social care. We really want to hear from people with practical experience of community engagement, who can demonstrate their understanding of the importance of engaging with people and communities in order to bring about positive developments at individual, local, regional or national levels. You also need to have a commitment to helping us improve the health and wellbeing of the Scottish people. If this is you, we would very much like to hear from you.

If you are appointed you will receive training and support to develop your skills and to learn any new skills you may require.
