NHS D&G is looking for three people to join its Board. These are rewarding and worthwhile opportunities that require a flexible approach to engaging with Board activities but will generally take up approximately 8 hours a week and last for up to 4 years. In return, you will be paid £8,842 a year. You will also get reasonable travel and subsistence costs, dependent carer expenses and support to help you
