We provide inpatient clinical services within a modern, personal and friendly 18-bedded unit, as well as Specialist Community Crisis Support Service, Hospice at Home Service, and Therapy and Wellbeing Services. Alongside these services, we have the hospice Pepperell Education Centre that has an excellent reputation for delivering high quality education programmes.

The post holder will be responsible and accountable for the promotion and monitoring safe and effective practice, through audit, compliance and monitoring, and will be the CQC lead and link to the registered manager. There will be a focus on the enhancement of service user experience as well as leadership across the organisation, especially clinical areas, and effective collaboration to contribute to the delivery of the organisation’s objectives and strategy. Practice development and quality improvement will be central to achieving this.

If you are highly motivated and dynamic registered professional, with strong leadership skills and a team player with strong interpersonal and communication skills, we would love to hear from you. In return we will offer supervision, reflective practice, staff support, professional development opportunities and a supportive working environment.
