Hospice to recruit new nurses

February 05

 St. Joseph’s Hospice, in Thornton, is looking to recruit six new Registered Nurses to its clinical team and has enhanced its clinical salaries and holiday entitlement.

The hospice is also in the process of enhancing its benefits package and will also honour the NHS pensions of any new recruits.

According to the Care Quality Commission (CQC), the hospice’s clinical staff are “kind and caring” and they “treat patients with respect”. The CQC also said its staff have a “good knowledge of safeguarding procedures” and receive “a good level of support and training” with “access to a variety of training courses”.

The hospice says it’s nurses are committed to providing high quality, end of life and palliative care to its patients, as part of a multi-disciplinary team, and so they’re looking for new recruits who will make a real commitment to the provision of this excellent care.

Clare Waller, Clinical Director at St. Joseph’s Hospice, said: “Nursing is one of the most rewarding careers there is and being a hospice nurse is quite simply a vocation.

“Our nurses are a lifeline to our patients and their families and are often considered as a part of the family, caring for them all during a very difficult and distressing time.

“At St. Joseph’s Hospice, we’ve been through a significant period of change over the last 18 months but the future looks bright and we’re looking for some real nursing talent to come and join our professional and compassionate team as we move the hospice forwards in 2018.”
