Clinical Nurse Specialist, Band 6 (part-time) - Hospice at Home

07 May 2019

Arthur Rank Hospice Charity supports people in Cambridgeshire who are living with a life-limiting illness. Delivered from our new location at Shelford Bottom, Cambridge and the Alan Hudson Day Treatment Centre in Wisbech, our care and services are provided free of charge and we have been recognised, this year, as outstanding by CQC. Our professional, compassionate and practical services deliver care, counselling and education, helping our patients and their loved ones to make every moment count. 

We are currently looking for a part- time Clinical Nurse Specialist Band 6, to work within our Hospice at Home function. Working predominantly day time and office based, across 7 days, you will provide expert knowledge and skills in the provision of palliative and end of life care to patients, their families/carers and the Primary Health Care Team. You will facilitate the holistic assessment, planned treatment and evaluation of patient centred care. In this rewarding role you will act as a supervisor/mentor to visiting students and staff undertaking educational courses as well as take an active role in the recruitment, selection and orientation of new staff to the team.

We are proud to offer a Hospice at Home service which is part of our Community Team. This compassionate and experienced team of nurses and healthcare assistants remain with someone who is dying in their own home overnight, providing direct hands on care and support. This team works in partnership with the wider health system, particularly District Nurses and GPs, the wider hospice team and other specialists, to support patients and families to be cared for at home if that is their wish. It is our intention to grow the service further to provide our care in the day time as well.

The ideal candidate will be a Registered General Nurse and have relevant recognised qualification and post registration experience in palliative and end of life care. Willing and able to travel between sites within community area and work flexibly across 7 days per week is essential.

At Arthur Rank Hospice we value our staff and offer a range of benefits: Personal Pension Plan (with ability to retain membership of NHS Pension Scheme subject to qualifying criteria), Childcare vouchers, Employee Assistance Programme, Cycle to Work Scheme, Study leave, Lease cars (eligibility criteria applies), generous holiday entitlement, Staff Survey and staff Forum, access to Occupational Health Services, flexible working, ongoing training, Group Life Assurance, Long Service Awards and staff discounts to our in-house Bistro and Salon HD.
