Get on board: apply now
Posted 03 February 2017
Victorians who have diverse skills and are passionate about health and the community should consider applying for a health services board position, the CEO of the Victorian Healthcare Association Mr Tom Symondson said today.
“I encourage Victorians of all walks of life to apply to serve on their local health service or hospital board when applications for appointments open across the state tomorrow,” Mr Symondson said.
“Victoria’s public hospitals and health services are the lifeblood of our communities. They require passionate people with diverse and qualified skills to ensure they best meet the needs of their communities.
“Diversity among board members is vital to accurately represent those they serve.
“We’ve worked really hard to boost the number of women on our boards, achieving more than 40 per cent gender equity. It’s also important to broaden diversity to include other demographic groups.
“We encourage people from diverse backgrounds, ages and experiences to apply for a position on their local hospital board,” Mr Symondson said.
The VHA has a keen interest in governance and the efficiency of Victorian hospital and health service boards. It works with board members to strengthen their clinical, financial and administrative skills.
“VHA is committed to assisting access to these roles and support hospital boards achieve the best outcomes for their communities.”
Applications for Victorian hospital board positions are open from 4 February until 19 February and can be accessed here.
