Would you like the opportunity to have time to practise person centred care in an environment with a high staff to patient ratio? We are currently recruiting for registered Staff Nurses at our In Patient Unit and would like to hear from you if you are interested in joining our small team and making a difference to patients, their families and carers.
You will assess individual care needs and develop appropriate care plans using a holistic approach, providing information, advice and support to patients, families and carers. You will also provide support to Nursing Support Assistants as required and maintain accurate nursing records using SystmOne. We offer excellent training opportunities including the opportunity to work in the Hospice at Home Team on rotation when staffing needs require, providing care to patients in their own homes.
To be considered for this role you will need to be a level one registered nurse and interested in developing your skills in a palliative care setting. Previous experience of working with terminally ill patients or in an oncology setting would be desirable and an understanding and commitment to hospice care philosophy and team nursing is essential. As part of a small team, you will need to be flexible and a good team player with the ability to work a full range of shifts including Nights, Weekends and Bank Holidays.
We offer ongoing membership of the NHS pension scheme for existing members and honour long service leave gained at the NHS or in another hospice. We also offer free parking, tea & coffee, Employee Assistance Programme, life assurance and pension.
Our staffing team (along with our volunteers) are our greatest asset, and recruiting, developing and retaining them is a high priority for us. We are offering an £1,000 bonus to successful applicants for the position of Staff Nurse in recognition of the skills and abilities you can bring to our service.
