Oxygen Chamber Operator

  • VO66758


Description

MS Therapy Centre in Dundee is accepting applications from people to join their team of oxygen chamber operators. Our oxygen sessions operate 6 days a week in a non-clinical environment. Volunteers would ideally provide back-up and support to our lead chamber operators. Full training would take place on the premises. As some of our members require assistance in and out of the oxygen chamber, would ask that you are physically fit. Ideally volunteer sessions would last 2-3 hours, once a week. The chamber seats 8 people at one time.
