St. Richard’s Hospice provides free specialist palliative and end of life care for adults in South Worcestershire with a serious progressive illness through our community teams, our newly developed state-of-the-art Living Well Centre and our seventeen beds. We offer care and encouragement to our patients, enabling them to take control of their lives as their condition changes and also offer support to their families and carers.

We are currently seeking a caring, compassionate, committed and professional Registered Nurse to join us as a Clinical Nurse Specialist to work within Worcester City as part of our Community Nursing team. The successful candidate will provide responsive, flexible, and palliative and end of life care to patients with complex palliative care needs in the community.

You will be responsible for a caseload, aligned to GP practices in South Worcestershire, and support patients by providing holistic nursing assessments and implementing and evaluating care needs as well as providing advice and support to those involved with the patient’s care.

This is an exciting time to join the Hospice as we are currently expanding and have just completed a £5.2m building project which will improve the facilities on our site in Wildwood Drive and provide support to more patients and families in Worcestershire.

Significant post registration and specialist palliative care experience is essential for this role and experience of working as a Community Nurse is desirable.

This is an ideal opportunity for someone looking to further develop their current skills and knowledge of specialist practice within the community setting whilst having the support of a highly skilled and innovative community team.
