Role

Visibility is a charity supporting children and adults who are blind or partially sighted operating mainly (but not exclusively) in the west and south of Scotland. We have an ambitious and exciting strategy for the coming 3 years and are looking to fill a variety of new posts to help us achieve our objectives.

Due to service expansion we are seeking 1 full time and 1 part time (14 hours per week) experienced Patient Support Workers to work as part of our multi-disciplinary, holistic team. The postholders will be responsible for providing patient centred support to patients, family members and carers attending the Eye Departments across NHSGGC or NHS Lanarkshire. They will provide emotional support, information and practical advice to help patients maximise their remaining vision and build their independence and sense of wellbeing.

This is an exciting opportunity to join a motivated and ambitious organisation. The successful candidate will ideally have a proven track record in health and social care or the willingness and motivation to learn!
