A key aspect of the rehabilitation process for those who have sustained spinal cord injuries is in learning how best to manage their condition and their lives once they have left hospital. Patient Education Programmes ensure patients leave armed with this information.
Our Patient Education Administrators work closely with the hospital teams, ensuring the education sessions are timetabled into patients’ diaries and that the staff and volunteers are available to deliver their sessions. They also make sure that the patients know what’s coming up and why it’s important they attend. After each session they gather feedback from the patients, seeking areas for improvement and ensuring that feedback is taken on board for the next time. The work of our Administrators has seen attendance at the sessions massively improve, with patient satisfaction also on the up.
We are looking to recruit a new Administrator for this vital role in Southport. This 3 hour a week role might be part time, but it makes a valuable contribution to ensuring that people with spinal cord injuries can live independently when they leave hospital. The role requires someone with excellent administration skills, the ability to communicate with a diverse range of people, and a proactive approach.
Based: Southport Spinal Injury Centre, Southport District General Hospital.
Hours of work: 3 hours per week
Salary: £8.20 per hour
Closing date: 27th July 2014.
Interviews: Week commencing 4th August 2014.
