You should be an experienced Registered Nurse, ideally with community nursing or palliative care experience. The service operates between 7am and 11pm 7 days a week and the Registered Nurses will be required to work flexibly to cover all Hospice at Home activities.
As a Hospice at Home RN you will be expected to receive and triage contacts from patients and family members and colleagues in primary and secondary care. You will need an excellent understanding of health and social care services so you can develop appropriate care packages for patients. You will work with our own Healthcare Assistants and external agencies to set up care packages and ensure they are delivered to our high standards. You will assist people to navigate services so that they receive a coordinated and seamless package of care. You will visit and assess patients at home, referring to and liaising with colleagues in other services to achieve this. You will work with the existing Hospice at Home team to deliver the Single Point of Access Service and Rapid Response Team that is able to deliver hands on care in response to urgent requests for assistance.
You will possess excellent clinical assessment skills and be able to work autonomously in order to deliver a high quality service to end of life care patients in their own homes. As a key member of a small team you will be a good communicator who can work flexibly in a team to meet the needs of the service. Car driver and owner essential.
