Chest Heart & Stroke Scotland (Aberdeen City Services)
Postcode: AB25 2ZN
Everyone has the right to live life to the full. After a diagnosis of a chest or heart condition or a stroke, many people experience fear and isolation and struggle with the impact on their lives. Chest Heart & Stroke Scotland won’t stand for that. The care and support we deliver every day ensures everyone can live the life they want to.
Across Scotland, over 1 million people – that’s one in five of the population – are living with the effects of serious chest and heart conditions and stroke. By 2021 we will double the number of people we support so that more people can live life to the full. We will do this by providing vital advice, information, and support through our No Life Half Lived Support services across Scotland.
CHSS provide a vital Stroke Nurse Service in the Grampian Area and we are seeking to complement our Stroke Nurse Services in Aberdeen Royal Infirmary and Woodend Hospital by the addition of a volunteer administrator. Volunteers are involved in extensive training and skill-building. Volunteers can expect to receive valuable, real skills and experience.
Main tasks may include:
>Visiting wards to collect referral letters and delivering these to the stroke nurse.
>Arranging appointments for nurse and sending out letters to patients.
>Inputting data from the stroke nurses notes into database.
>Ordering publications, profile packs and advice sheets.
>Updating the Stroke Information Pack.
>Preparation of initial paperwork for nurses’ first visits.
