The team will also provide essential support to carers and family members.
Are you a resilient and empathetic registered nurse with a post-registration qualification in cancer/palliative care or long-term conditions? Do you have experience in the delivery of palliative care, including holistic assessment and complex symptom management? Are you an excellent communicator, with the ability to both lead and build strong relationships with colleagues, as well as other health professionals, to deliver the best possible care for our patients, ensuring Farleigh Hospice is as an integral part of the local health and care economy? If so, and you’re ready for a new challenge within a successful, forward thinking organisation we would love to hear from you.
In return you will be supported by a dedicated team and have access to excellent education facilities to develop your skills and career. We offer a great working environment, a competitive pay and benefit package, flexible working and a strong team to support you.
