Are you a dynamic, enthusiastic healthcare professional ready to take on the challenge of developing and managing the Outpatient and Community Services provided by St Andrew’s Hospice?
We are looking for a healthcare professional to lead this area of work and the team of staff associated with it. You may be an Allied Health Professional or Nurse by background but will have extensive experience of project management, health improvement methodology and of managing a team of staff – some of whom may be a shared resource. This is an exciting element of the Hospice’s Strategic Plan to ensure we continue to fulfil the Scottish Government’s vision that by 2021, everyone in Scotland who needs palliative care will have access to it.
We have in place a small number of Outpatient Services including: Wellbeing Programme, Occupational Therapy and Physiotherapy Outpatient clinics as well as Complementary Therapy and some small group sessions for Strength and Balance and Fatigue Management. We also have a Community Palliative Care Project in place which aims to help and support patients to remain in their own homes for as long as possible. We have also started a pilot of a Compassionate Communities Project which is in the early stages of development. Our vision and plan is to expand and develop these services and to ensure that patients and their loved ones can access the right services for them at the right stage in their journey.
