 Age UK Lancashire is excited to be recruiting an experienced Parkinson’s Independence Coordinator, as we launch our brand-new service based at the Royal Preston Hospital, working alongside a specialised Parkinson’s clinical team.

This is an exciting opportunity to be part of innovative new project collaborating with the Neurology Department at Lancashire Teaching Hospital NHS Foundation Trust.

The aim of the project is to empower patients diagnosed with Parkinson’s, and their families and carers, to gain control over their care and support needs, from post-diagnosis to end-of-life and to receive personalised care at home.

Ideally you will have the following skills and experience:

  • In-depth understanding of Parkinson’s and the related support that maybe required
  • Background and/or current experience in health and social care
  • Experience of actively participating in the monitoring and evaluation of projects and the willingness to engage with storytelling to demonstrate impact.
  • Strong organisational skills with the ability to manage a complex workload.

If you are passionate about making a difference and have experience working with people living with Parkinson’s, then we would love to hear from you. 

If you would like an informal discussion about the post please contact Diane Armstrong, Head of Service, 07775 683048
