NORTH DEVON HOSPICE
Part-time Staff Nurse (Band 5)
£22,202.34 - £28,460.04 per annum + shift enhancements for weekend, public holiday and night working
Last year we cared for 144 patients on our 7 Bedded Unit which is based in our beautiful grounds at Deer Park in Barnstaple. 90% of these patients had a cancer diagnosis and the remaining 10% were referred to us for other life-limiting conditions. Our Bedded Unit receives referrals for a number of reasons including control of symptoms for pain or nausea/sickness, rehabilitation following treatment, or care in the last days of life. Our specialist medical team provide round the clock care and support to our patients in the comfort of a welcoming and homely environment.
We are looking for a first level Registered Nurse to join our multi-disciplinary team based on our Bedded Unit. The role will involve carrying out all relevant forms of care and procedures to our patients without direct supervision, to provide support to their families and carers and to supervise and provide leadership to junior staff, volunteers and learners as appropriate.
It is essential that applicants have post-registration nursing experience and have excellent communication and interpersonal skills. Experience in palliative care or oncology would be desirable.
Part-time: 120 hours every 4 weeks (averaging 30 hours per week)
The hours are to be worked on a shift rota to include the following shifts: Early shift: 7.30am - 3.30pm, Late Shift: 1.30pm - 9.30pm, Night Shift: 9.00pm - 8.00am. Flexibility is required to meet the needs of the hospice.
If you are interested in working in this very rewarding area of healthcare we would love to hear from you. Informal discussion welcomed. Please contact Caroline Hales, Clinical Team Leader or Margaret Beck, Senior Staff Nurse on 01271 344248.
