NHS Dumfries & Galloway

Do you want to make a difference to the NHS in your local community?


The NHS impacts on everyone’s lives at one time or another and this could be your chance to get involved in improving, sustaining and protecting the health of the local population.

What’s involved?

NHS Dumfries and Galloway is looking for one new member to join its Board.  This is a challenging, rewarding and worthwhile opportunity that will involve around one day per week on NHS Board business. In return, you will be paid £9,030 per annum (non-pensionable). You will also get reasonable travel and subsistence costs, dependant carer expenses and support to help you carry out your duties.

Can I apply?

We want to hear from people from a range of backgrounds who have a commitment to helping us improve the health and wellbeing of the people living in Dumfries and Galloway and who share the NHS Scotland Values which guide the work of the Board in everything that it does.  We are particularly looking for someone who has experience of transformational change in performance and service delivery.

If this is you, we would like to hear from you.
