‘Where possible, there’s a commitment to local appointments’ – Maryanne Puli Vogels
Current Board Chair Maryanne Puli Vogels hasn’t been a local for long, but said Timboon and District Healthcare Service had very quickly found a place in her heart.
“It’s one of the most rewarding things I’ve ever done and watching us, as a Board and management team, work towards a wonderful future is so rewarding,” she said.
“We all want a sustainable healthcare service for our community and the appointment of a board that includes local expertise and passion is really important.
“Our organisation needs skilled, qualified and experienced people from our community to apply and time is running out.
“The current board has a great mix of skilled people from near and far. Successful applicants will always be ministerial appointments, but ultimately the first step to a possible appointment is applying.”
Ms Puli Vogels has invited anyone interested in applying for a Board position to personally contact her to discuss the opportunity. She can be emailed via firstname.lastname@example.org or phoned on 0437 438 945.
“It’s an opportunity to contribute and provide high level advice on the delivery of public health care to our local community,” she said.
“Successful applicants now get paid a small fee to sit on the board. It’s remuneration for your time to attend the Board meetings.
“Governance of public health services is changing. Where possible there’s a commitment to the inclusion of locals, which is great. At the same time, if particular skill sets don’t come forward locally, the Government adds that expertise from outside the immediate area.
“If you don’t have the available time or qualifications for a Board position, but would still like to contribute to TDHS, you can apply for a valued volunteer position on one of our important subcommittees as a consumer representative or become a valued Community Driver or Meals on Wheels volunteer. Every contribution is welcome,” Ms Puli Vogels concluded.
