Chest Heart & Stroke Scotland (CHSS) is an independent Scottish charity, whose mission is to be the community of support, kindness and challenge where people can help each other, can secure the expert help they need, and collectively advocate for the care that matters to them. We offer vital advice, support and information to those affected so that they can live the lives they want to live and influence public policy to ensure that people get the services that they need. Our renewed ambition is to become Scotland’s leading organisation for person-centred, user-led community support for people with our health conditions.
We are seeking an experienced Project Support Officer to provide support for a new project supporting people recovering from COVID 19. The project, in collaboration with NHS Lothian, is for the “Digital and personalised health information/ advice with facilitation enabling people to create their pathway to self-manage recovery from COVID-19”.
Strategic aims of the project:
· To create a supportive accessible recovery pathway to eventual self-management for people living with the impact of a COVID 19 diagnosis.
· To engage with people living with impact of the virus to better understand the spectrum of diagnosis and clinical manifestations and the impact on daily living.
· To evaluate the efficacy of our service design, make appropriate improvements and prepare to scale up across the country.
The role will also include administrative support to the wider Services Directorate and Services Management Team.
Applications are welcome from candidates with relevant experience who are organised, motivated, with good communication skills and are able to manage competing demands for support across multiple projects.
