NHS South Sefton Clinical Commissioning Group is looking for a new member to join its governing body.
This comes after the current lay representative Graham Bayliss, is stepping down from the role.
Graham Bayliss joined the CCG in 2016 after 23 years with Sefton Council holding many senior positions including Director of leisure and tourism.
He said: “I’ve really enjoyed my five years with NHS South Sefton CCG, during a time of great challenge for the NHS.
“I would urge anyone who is interested in representing our local community within the CCG and beyond to apply for the role of lay member for public patient engagement.”
The now vacant role of lay representative requires someone who will lead on public and patient involvement and make decisions about the work of the CCG on behalf of its 30 member practices.
The role also requires attendance at bi-monthly meetings and providing professional advice and support.
The successful candidate will use their knowledge and interest of our communities to make sure the public voice of the local population is heard and that opportunities are created and protected for patient and public empowerment in the work of the CCG.
Dr Craig Gillespie, chair of NHS South Sefton CCG, added: “The contribution made by our lay representative is vital in helping the governing body understand the views of the local population.
“On behalf of my governing body colleagues, I would like to thank Graham for his valuable contribution to the community and wish him well for the future.”
