We offer access to Community Nurse Specialists, an 18-bedded In-patient Unit, Day Hospice, Out-patient, Hospice@Home and Bereavement Care. These services are provided by a fully staffed multidisciplinary team and are further supported by an Education Department that delivers a wide range of internal and external education and training.
This is a new role which has been created to support governance and offers an exciting opportunity to work as part of the senior clinical team to develop and expand our practice and services.
