“The HSE has recently established a national Working Group focused on planning rehabilitation and recovery services for A) post acute COVID care and B) long COVID care. The group is chaired by Dr. Siobhán Ni Bhriain, Integrated Care Lead, Chief Clinical Officer Division.
HSCP representation and input is being sought to assist with this work and to this end, HSCP Professional Body Nominations are now being invited for community-based HSCP representatives. Further HSCP representatives may be sought as the process evolves but at this stage, community-based experience and expertise is requested.
Nominations (one per professional body) should be sent by email to Richard.firstname.lastname@example.org by COB on 18th March 2021 and include the following details:
· Professional Body making nomination
· Name of nominated HSCP representative
· Representative’s profession and grade
· Role details – employing service and location
Representatives will meet virtually to input to the planning process. It is anticipated that two meetings will take place each month, over approximately four months, and representatives may be required to complete some work outside meetings as indicated. It should be noted that this anticipated commitment may change somewhat as the programme of work evolves.
We appreciate the short notice in this case and thank you for your ongoing support.
The work is progressing at pace and it is important for HSCP to input at this early stage.”
