Patient Participation Lead (Brighton) – Common Ambition Project
We are looking for an outstanding candidate to fulfil the role of Patient Participation Lead for Brighton and Hove Common Ambition, a patient involvement project, partnering with Arch Health, Brighton and Hove CCG, Brighton and Hove City Council Public Health Department and the University of Brighton.
Common Ambition launched in April 2021 and is a 3-year project, funded by the Health Foundation which aims to involve patients in the evaluation, design and delivery of health services for homeless patients in Brighton & Hove. The focus of the project is on ensuring patient voice and expertise is included in the commissioning and delivery of homeless health services in the city.
Our ideal candidate will be someone who has good experience of frontline work with people who are experiencing homelessness. They will be organised and able to manage a wide range of tasks to support the delivery of the outcomes set out in the project plan. They will also have excellent written and verbal communication skills with the ability to organise and understand complex information. We are looking for a team player with strong interpersonal skills, self-confidence and the ability to relate to patients and motivate them to get involved in transforming the system for the benefit of others.
This is a great opportunity to influence and improve health services for some of the most vulnerable people in our city, as well as helping Justlife to learn, develop and improve client participation across the organisation.
