About the role
Access Health and Community (AccessHC) is a not for profit primary health service, with a 150 year history in community health. The AccessHC Board consists of eight Directors and has a vacancy for one additional Director. The current Chair is Mr John Michailidis. It meets monthly, on the first Tuesday of the month at 5pm at Richmond (currently by Zoom). It is an unpaid position. There are at least 10 meetings a year, with Board committees meeting at least quarterly.
AccessHC is seeking Directors with skills and experience to complement existing Board capabilities and guide the growth and development of the service. There is no prerequisite skill set but financial, government affairs or lived experience as a health consumer would be well considered. A genuine commitment to serving the needs of local community and to providing accessible health services for all is important.
Applications from our diverse community are encouraged.
