Members - Community Health Councils

Do you have an interest in your local NHS? Do you want to improve local health services in your area? Do you have 3-5 days free per month to become a volunteer?

If you answered YES to the above questions, then become a volunteer of the Community Health Councils (CHC) in Wales.

We are looking for people from all walks of life, of all ages. We ensure no eligible candidate receives less favourable treatment on the grounds of: age, disability, gender, marital status, sexual orientation, gender reassignment, race, colour, nationality, ethnic or national origins, religion or religious affiliation.

The most important requirement is a genuine interest in improving health services for your community. Some key skills which would be useful include: an interest in local health issues, being able to work in a team and with a diverse range of people plus good communication skills.

What are CHCs?
CHCs represent the independent voice of patients and the public who use the health service in Wales. They play an important role in influencing the way services are planned and delivered, to ensure the best possible health and wellbeing outcomes for all people in Wales.

What do CHC members do?
CHC members are local volunteers who act as the eyes and ears of patients and the public, visiting hospitals, listening to patient concerns and working with the health service to improve the quality of patient care.

Successful candidates will be given training and support to enable them to carry out their role and any ‘out of pocket’ expenses such as travel will be reimbursed.
