Overnight Palliative Care Team Lead

AfC Band 8a (£48,111-£56,438 inclusive)

Full time/part time


Based in Finchley

We are pleased to announce an exciting new initiative!

The North London Hospice community palliative care service is developing its 24-hour visiting service for patients in the Boroughs of Barnet, Enfield and Haringey. We aim to support people diagnosed with life-limiting illness, to be cared for in their preferred place of care which is usually their own home and prevent unwanted admissions to hospitals. Our community palliative care teams provide a seven-day service. The team is supported by our Hospice at Home service, Inpatient Unit and Health and Wellbeing service.

We are looking for a full/part-time Team Lead to deliver and shape the night service 20.00–08.00.

Ideally you will have some palliative care experience; however, we value experience in a variety of settings and are looking for staff who are enthusiastic and want to deliver compassionate, patient-centred care.

We offer continuation of the NHS pension scheme, salary in line with agenda for change, including enhancements, inner London supplement and NHS-aligned annual leave. We also offer ongoing professional development, and support with revalidation, as well as a fully-funded health cash plan, workplace perks, discounted cinema scheme, etc. If you are keen to develop your skills and work in a friendly team this could be the opportunity for you.

If you would like any further information or to discuss this post please contact Geraldine Barry (Associate Director Community) on 020 8343 8841 – email gbarry@northlondonhospice.co.uk or one of the team leads on 0208343 8841 or email:
