Bliss, the UK charity for every baby born premature or sick, has launched its new strategy to ensure we continue to expand our services to drive improvements for more babies born premature or sick. As part of this new strategy we have created two teams within our Service Department to lead our work with families and health professionals respectively.
The Information and Support Team will lead the delivery of services to support parents in caring and decision-making for their babies; and the Healthcare Engagement Team will lead on developing Bliss’ priority services for health professionals.
This is an exciting opportunity to join a growing organisation and contribute to our vision that every baby born premature or sick in the UK has the best chance of survival and quality of life.
