EoL Urgent Care Registered Nurse - Band 5...St Luke's Hospice is delivering on its vision of a ‘Hospice without Walls’ with the support of its End of Life Urgent Care Team, which cares for patients at the end of life through a time of crisis, in their own homes. We are currently looking for an experienced Registered Nurse to join the team.
Operational since November 2014, the End of Life Urgency Care Team consists of both Registered Nurses and HCA's working together in meeting the needs of the patients at the end of life in the community setting.
To be a part of this caring and compassionate team as a Band 5 nurse, you will need to be able to work autonomously and be responsible for ongoing holistic assessments and planning of care to meet the patient’s practical, psychological, spiritual and social needs.
You will be responsible for triage, allocation and delegation of work to other team members and will need to ensure that a safe, effective service is provided, and that our patients changing needs are met.
You will work closely with both primary and secondary care health professionals and other Hospice colleagues, therefore good communication skills are essential.
You will be required to work long shifts, both days and nights, across a large geographical area, and you will also need to have access to your own transport.
As a staff member of St Luke’s you will receive an attractive employment package, which includes 7 weeks annual leave rising with service (inc. bank hols) and membership to a cash back health plan. St Luke’s is committed to the development of its staff.
