The Guy's and St Thomas' Palliative care team a well-established team and passionate about ensuring excellence in clinical care, teaching, training and research in Palliative and End of Life Care.
We are on the cutting edge of innovation in Palliative and End of Life Care and can offer an exciting career move for the right candidate. As part of King’s Health Partners we have close links with the world class Cicely Saunders Institute, part of King’s College London. Guy’s & St. Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust is home to initiatives such as the AMBER care bundle and we responded early to the Neuberger review with the implementation of the new Principles of Care for the Dying patient across our hospitals and in the community.
In March 2016 the CQC rated the hospital & community end of life care services at Guy’s and St Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust (GSTFT) as ‘good’ overall. The report stated that the end of life care (EOLC) team, specialist palliative care team (SPCT) and community nurses were passionate about ensuring patients and people close to them received safe, effective and good quality care in a timely manner.
You will need to be energetic and flexible in your approach to your work. You will be provided with a personal training programme with mentorship and support from multi-professional colleagues and our Head of Nursing. All Clinical Nurse Specialists within our team also receive regular clinical supervision.
You must have experience of working with patients requiring specialist palliative care support in the hospital, community or hospice setting. A diploma or degree in palliative care is desirable. Further essential criteria include: excellent communication skills, an ability to work autonomously, and as part of a team, to demonstrate an understanding of the complex health needs and social pressures within a deprived inner city population. The candidate must also hold a full UK driving license. We actively encourage and support professional development and there are also opportunities to contribute to research and audit projects.
