Community Overnight Service Health Care Support Workers
Band 3 – (£22,113 – £ 24,774 (FTE) inclusive)
Full time/Part time
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 admission to hospital. 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 full/part-time overnight Health Care Support Workers 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, 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.
