About the role

This is an exciting time to join us at St Barnabas Hospice as we grow our advanced nurse workforce to deliver specialist palliative and end of life care to our community. You’ll work across our in-patient and community services and support us as we implement our new Care Strategy designed to support people reaching the end of their life with both cancer and non-cancer diagnoses, including those living with frailty, dementia, and neurological conditions.

You’ll be working with a dynamic, and highly integrated multidisciplinary team, and will want to actively participate in abroad range of teaching, leadership and research activities and enjoy being part of a team passionate about advancing palliative and end of life care at local national and global levels.

About you

You’ll be highly motivated with advanced practice experience, confident decision-making skills, and with a passion to always improve. Experience in palliative and end of life care is desirable, but we’d be keen to hear from experienced nurses with advanced assessment and non-medical prescribing skills and a willingness to develop their end of life and palliative care specialist knowledge.

This role aligns with Health Education England’s Advanced Clinical Practice Framework to ensure our underpinning standards are consistent with advanced level practice, including physical assessment and non-medical prescribing.

Key aspects of the role are:

  • provide high quality, evidence-based specialist care to patients and their families, with care, compassion, and dignity
  • deliver advanced nursing practice, including clinical assessment and examination and nurse independent prescribing, to promote clinical effectiveness in all areas of patient care
  • provide senior clinical leadership to junior staff around patient care, treatment, and management
  • work flexibly, including weekend and evenings and participating in the on-call rota where required
  • enable the patient to achieve their preferred place of care and death

A full driving licence and access to a car for work purposes is required.
