Community Palliative Response Sister

Are you ready to lead a friendly, motivated and dynamic team dedicated to delivering high quality, safe, evidence-based care?

Is using a holistic approach that is sensitive and responsive to patients’ ever-changing needs central to your desire to deliver exemplary care?

Are you looking for an environment where you truly have time to care?

If you’ve answered ‘yes’ to any of these questions then this could be your next career move. We are seeking an organised, determined and motivated individual to take on the role of Community Palliative Response Sister.

You will work as part of an extended community team, working in patients’ home environments including, as required, in care homes. A key member in our multi-disciplinary team, you will lead on the assessment, planning, and implementation of your allocated patients each day using the skills and evaluation of individualised patient-centred care.

You will be the lead visiting nurse on your shifts working alongside Team Lead and other team members as required. Organised, personable and committed, you will be required to co-ordinate your shifts and visits, being responsive and flexible to the needs of the caseload.

Holistic care is central to what we are about and your role will be pivotal in undertaking these assessments to explore individual patients’ and their carers’/families’ physical, emotional, spiritual and practical needs as well as welfare rights and, if appropriate, the families’ pre and post bereavement needs.

The service operates 8am-10pm across 7days, covering the South West Hertfordshire locality.

In this crucial role you will be just as at home, and confident, in working as a lone worker as you will in working in collaboration with external providers. Experienced in delivering both generalist basic and complex specialist nursing care interventions, you will be driven by the desire to continually improve a service that aspires to be the best.

 

Superb professional development opportunities.

Excellent working environment that is supported by an open culture of learning and development for all our staff and volunteers.

Workplace pension with Peace Hospice Care matching contributions up to 7%. Alternatively, new clinical members of staff at Band E & above who have a current NHS pension can apply to continue their pension during their employment at the Hospice.

27 days’ annual leave per year rising to 30 days after 5 years’ service plus Bank Holidays (pro rata for part time employees).

Employee Benefits Package

Employee benefits including Cycle to Work and Computer purchase schemes

Employee Assistance Programme.
