Through giving grants to those working at the front line, to carrying out research and policy analysis, the Foundation shines a light on how to make successful change happen that is improving health and health care for the UK population. The Health Foundation believes that every person in the UK should have the opportunity for a healthy life and access to the same standard of health care, irrespective of their background. The coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic has had an unprecedented impact on our national health and care services. It has also further highlighted the impact health inequalities in the UK – as the pandemic has affected some groups of people much more than others.
The Role

The Board is now looking for two exceptional Governors who share our goal of better health and health care for people in the UK and wish to provide insight and challenge towards the strategic direction of the Foundation.

We are looking for committed and passionate people to join our Board who bring direct experience in either of the following:
