Staff Nurses - Band 5 / In-Patient Unit
Princess Alice Hospice is one of the top ten adult hospices in the UK providing specialist palliative care in a superb purpose-built 24 bedded In-Patient Unit (IPU) and Day Hospice, and in the community.
We recently received Outstanding in all 5 domains from the CQC, a result we are immensely proud of. We pride ourselves on our holistic, patient and family centred approach to end of life care and our specialist symptom control. Our staff are also very proud to work here….
In addition to core professional training and development opportunities, the Hospice provides a comprehensive specialist post registration development package, up to and including Masters Level Accreditation.
About the role
We are looking experienced staff, either nurses or paramedics, with excellent communication and interpersonal skills to join our team. You will work closely with the Clinical Leads, including the Night Lead, to support specific developments within the team aimed at ensuring more people achieve a peaceful and comfortable death in their preferred place of care.
Experience of working within a team on an In-Patient Unit and/or in the community is desirable, however candidates with experience of supporting and caring for terminally ill patients in other settings will also be considered. You must be able to demonstrate evidence of commitment to developing skills and knowledge in specialist palliative care.
We offer a flexible approach to rostering and we will consider part-time applications; early, late, twilight shifts are available, however please note that night shifts are currently a mandatory requirement of the position (usually 2-3 per month pro rata).
If you have the right values for our organisation (visit www.pah.org.uk) and want to be part of this outstanding multi professional team then please do not hesitate to contact us. In return we are committed to supporting new staff through a programme of continuous training, development and clinical supervision.
