Unpaid Carer Opportunity

Are you an unpaid carer living in North Ayrshire, or a current service user of North Ayrshire Health and Social Care Partnership?

Would you like an opportunity to share your views on the work North Ayrshire Health and Social Care Partnership does and to help influence future decision making?

NAHSCP is currently looking for service user and unpaid carer representatives to sit on our Integration Joint Board (IJB).

The IJB is responsible for the planning, resourcing and delivery of NHS Ayrshire & Arran and North Ayrshire Council social care services.

Membership of the Board is made up of elected councillors, North Ayrshire Council members and representatives from the independent and third sectors, service users/public representatives, staff and carers.

Both roles involve engaging and gathering views from either other service users or unpaid carers. Using this, and your own experience, will give the perspective of service users and unpaid carers to the work of the IJB on the future of health and social care services in North Ayrshire.

Would you like the opportunity to share your views on the work we do and help to influence future decisions on services?  Click here to find out more.
