NHS Ayrshire & Arran is looking for a new member to join its board as a whistleblowing champion.

The role is part of a national development which will see dedicated whistleblowing champions recruited to every health board in Scotland by the end of 2019.

Non-executive board members contribute a few days of their time each month – it is a challenging and rewarding role which will have a lasting impact on the delivery of healthcare across Ayrshire and Arran.

The board isn't involved in the day to day running of the organisation, but it provides leadership, guidance and direction.

Martin Cheyne, chairman of Ayrshire and Arran NHS Board, said: "This is a great opportunity for anyone with an interest in their local health service to become more involved in decision making and in ensuring the accountability of the executive board members.

"As well as having a remit as the Whistleblowing Champion you will also be a non-executive member of the board.

"You will have a key role in supporting the delivery of the organisation’s strategic direction, in addition to scrutinising performance and discharging governance and accountability functions. I would urge anyone who is keen to make a difference to consider applying."
