SBSS is a confidential bereavement service for people who need structure care and support following the death of someone.
We are looking to recruit new committee members. We meet the first Wednesday of every month at 5.30pm. We're a really friendly bunch an most meetings are lightsome and quick. Why not come along for a meeting to see what you think before committing yourself1?! SBSS is a charity, and is led by the committee - so you get to make a real difference to shape the delivery and direction of the service in Shetland. It's a great way of giving something back to Shetland and the community - without a committee, we can't run and there would be no SBSS.
Research Ethics Committees consist of up to 18 members from both clinical and non-clinical backgrounds. Our committees review health and social research, check that people are provided with the information they need to help them decide whether they wish to take part, and provide an opinion as to whether the research is ethical.
We currently have vacancies for members of the public who are not currently healthcare professionals, and who are interested in thinking about issues from the perspective of a potential research participant and would like to develop knowledge of research ethics. Members receive training in ethical review and have opportunities to debate challenging issues. Positions are voluntary but expenses are paid for.
The Committee meets on average for half a day per month and carry out additional work by email correspondence. Contact us for an application form or an informal chat on tel: 01224 558458, email email@example.com
