Head of Medical Advisory Service (MAS)
The Helen Bamber Foundation is seeking to appoint an experienced GP with an established interest in health care for asylum seekers and trafficking survivors to lead our Medical Advisory Service and work with our multi-disciplinary team to support our clients.
The Medical Advisory Service (MAS) delivers comprehensive assessments of the complex medical needs of HBF clients, offering a safe space in which to advise them on these needs and co-ordination of client care with statutory services. At present, as well as the lead doctor, there are four volunteer doctors and one physiotherapist to provide clients with this specialist service. As well as carrying their own case load the appointee will manage and supervise the medical volunteers and will help with further recruitment and training of new volunteers as needed.
The appointee will contribute to the training and development of other HBF staff and volunteers and will contribute to external dissemination of our work. They will work with Professor Katona, our Medical and Research Director, who is responsible for oversight of evidence-based clinical excellence across our model of care.
We hope that this will prove to be a rewarding opportunity for an experienced GP to bring additional expertise in healthcare for our community to the team and help us build our medical service to the benefit of our clients.
The Helen Bamber Foundation and Asylum Aid is an equal opportunities and Living Wage employer. We are committed to attracting and recruiting diverse candidates as we are keen to make sure that our staff, trustees, volunteers and ambassadors reflect the communities we serve and the wider community we work in at every level within the organisation. We particularly welcome applications from Minority Ethnicities.
