Duchess of Kent Hospice, 22 Liebenrood Road, Reading, Berks RG30 2DX
Full/part time/job share available over days/shifts with a requirement for night duty on rota basis including weekends
Would you like to join the team at the Duchess of Kent Hospice as a Registered Nurse? Experience in palliative care is required. These posts would also suit newly qualified staff through to those with experience in oncology, palliative care and life limiting diseases.
Duchess of Kent is a Sue Ryder hospice, based in Reading. We're here for people aged 18 and over dying from all kinds of conditions like cancer, heart failure and lung disease. We offer a huge range of support from our three sites, from inpatient care at the 15-bed Duchess of Kent Hospice in Reading, day services which help people stay at home longer and offer respite to carers, to Wokingham Day Hospice and Charles Clore Day Hospice in Newbury. Our expert care team includes doctors, nurses, care assistants, physiotherapists, occupational and complementary therapists, social workers, bereavement support workers and volunteer befrienders.
At Sue Ryder not only do we treat more conditions than any other UK charity in our hospices, neurological care centres and out in the community; we also campaign to improve the lives of people living with them. We see the person, not the condition, taking time to understand the small things that help that person live the fullest life they can. Our shops, fundraising and volunteers support us to be there for people at the most difficult time of their lives.
We know that where you work is important to you. Who we employ is important to us, so if you are thinking about a move into palliative care, do come and talk to us.
