ON CALL SPECIALITY DOCTORS – PALLIATIVE MEDICINE

If you are a doctor who is enthusiastic, proactive and passionate about providing palliative care, then we would like to hear from you.

We are recruiting Specialty Palliative Care Doctors to work on a On-call basis to provide medical input for the Inpatient Unit, ensuring a high standard of patient care out of hours and providing telephone advice as required to healthcare professionals regarding palliative care patients in the community.

At Peace Hospice Care we offer the opportunity to be part of a dynamic and committed department which works to ensure our patients have choice in relation to their treatment and care. Our focus is on a multidisciplinary, holistic approach ensuring that each patient’s overall mental and social needs are met as well as managing the physical symptoms that they are experiencing.

The ideal candidate will have excellent communication and organisational skills and the ability both to lead and to work as part of a team. At PHC our doctors are incredibly independent and use their own initiative; this is a quality greatly valued. Experience in providing palliative and end of life care is essential.

Peace Hospice Care strives continuously to demonstrate its values which are embedded in the recruitment and selection processes. We are fully committed to equality, diversity and inclusion in both our workforce and within our culture. 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.
