Community Palliative Response Sister/Charge Nurse

Are you enthusiastic, proactive and passionate about palliative care?  Then come and join our team at Peace Hospice Care in Watford in an exciting, challenging and fast-paced community environment.

Working as part of a team, you will deliver individualised care for patients’ families and carers supporting their wishes and preferences at home.

You will be working a range of day shifts to cover a 12-hour 7-day service and will receive additional out of hours payments for unsociable hours.

You will:

  • Have the ability to work both autonomously and together within our developing multidisciplinary team.
  • Use excellent written and verbal communication skills to communicate highly sensitive information, ensuring patients and their families/carers are adequately supported and update electronic and paper documents.
  • Be able to demonstrate through electronic and paper documentation, and verbal communication the care undertaken and patient outcomes.

Experience in Palliative Care is desirable; however, we welcome applications from nurses with post registration experience who have a passion for individualised holistic care, are committed to providing excellent care and are keen to learn and develop new skills.

As this role delivers services in the community it is essential that you are a car driver and have access to vehicle for use.

You will be able to continue to contribute to your existing NHS pension scheme.

Ours is an organisation that strives continuously to demonstrate our values which are embedded in our recruitment and selection processes and we are fully committed to equality, diversity and inclusion in both our workforce and within our culture. We are proud to have received CQC outstanding for care July 2016 – come and join our outstanding team!

The aim is for our workforce to be truly representative of all sections of society, and for every employee and volunteer to feel respected and supported to perform at their best, and achieve their full potential.  We welcome applications from everyone in our community; please contact a member of the HR team for more information on our commitment to deliver equality throughout a diverse workforce.
