The current clinical team are keen to attract a dynamic and enthusiastic colleague, and, with this in mind, flexible opportunities to work within hospice, community and acute hospital settings may be available, depending on the preferred interests and expertise of the applicant.

The nursing teams provide a seven day service in both community and acute hospital settings. This is supported by the regional palliative medicine specialist 24 hour advice line, for which the post holder would provide telephone advice within a 1 in 7 rota.
