Are you ready for a new challenge in a dynamic environment?

Would you like to empower and support people with advanced and progressive illnesses to maximise their individual quality of life and death?

If so this could be the post you are looking for.

We are looking to recruit an enthusiastic and highly motivated person to join our community palliative care team. You should have a degree or be working towards one, and  have experience of working in palliative care, oncology or managing patients with long term conditions at end of life. Community experience is also desirable but not essential.

The role requires the CNS to provide specialist palliative care to patients with complex problems, act as a specialist resource to generic health and social care professionals and deliver education and training to develop their palliative care practice.

The role will require an ability to work both independently and as part of the multidisciplinary team, and communicate effectively with a wide range of healthcare professionals.  

We offer a supportive learning environment, clinical supervision, access to training and mentorship and encouragement and support with continued professional development.
