Want to make a difference to NHSScotland?



The NHS impacts on everyone's lives at one time or another and this could be your chance to get involved with an organisation who helps to deliver better patient care by providing educational solutions for workforce development. 

What's involved?

NHS Education for Scotland is looking for two people to join its Board. These are challenging, rewarding and worthwhile opportunities that will take up around 8 hours a week and last for up to 4 years in the first instance. In return, you will be paid £8,169 a year. You will also get reasonable travel and subsistence costs, dependent carer expenses and support to help you carry out your duties. 

Can I apply?

We want to hear from people with a divers range of skills, backgrounds and knowledge. You do not need to be a health or education expert, or have previous experience of being on a Board. You do need to have a commitment to supporting the delivery of high quality education, training and lifelong learning which are vital to providing excellent health services. 

If this is you, we would 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.
