Appointing top notch Lay Members

This year we worked for the Registration Council for Clinical Physiologists. They had already created role descriptions so it was a case of tweaking what they had to make it more appealing to the audience they were trying to attract. Following an advertising round, working closely with Healthwatch colleagues across the Midlands and using LinkedIn and our own networks we were able to recommend for interview some really strong candidates.

We created an assessment process and criteria and following a round of exceptionally high quality interviews the RCCP has appointed Stephen Murfitt in the role of Disciplinary Officer. Stephen has a background as a Partner and Chair at Blake Lapthorne Solicitors. Joining Stephen are Deb Saunders who will shortly be stepping down from her role as CEO of Healthwatch Warwickshire and Paul Sharpe who until recently was the CEO and Chair of the Institute of Professional Will writers. These appointments signify a new chapter in the life of the council as it widens its membership to include external lay appointments and we are really pleased to have been able to support them on their journey.

‘The help and support we received from Patient and Public Involvement was really high quality and we couldn’t have done it without them’.

Amanda Casey, Chair of the RCCP
