Hours: 2-4 days per week (negotiable) plus 1:5 1st on-call, including weekends
End date: Closing date: 08 August 2021, Interview date: 18 August 2021

Would you like to join a friendly, supportive team and gain experience, confidence and skills in Palliative Medicine? An opportunity has arisen for a Specialty Doctor to join our medical team.

St Wilfrid’s is an established and well supported hospice with 14 in-patient beds, a community service and Living Well Centre, education and bereavement services. Your clinical duties will include supporting our GP trainee with the care of patients on the inpatient unit, and supporting our hospice community team. You will be involved in teaching, quality improvement and other governance activities. Support will be given towards maintaining CPD and revalidation.

The post is available for two to four Mon-Fri days per week. The post holder will be first on-call from home on a rota of 1:5, including weekends and Bank Holidays. At weekends the first on-call doctor undertakes a ward round and admissions are received.

Applicants must be fully registered with the GMC, have a licence to practice and have a minimum of two years UK experience at SHO level, including some palliative care experience in hospital, community or hospice. The post would suit a GP/other doctor looking to extend their skills and develop an interest in Palliative Medicine, or someone with more extensive palliative care experience looking for a change.

Here in our fantastic new hospice on the rural fringes of the market and county town of Chichester you will find a friendly working atmosphere and inspiring committed colleagues. Our comprehensive benefits package includes holiday entitlement starting at 27 days per year, increasing to 33 days, plus bank holidays (pro rata). Continuation of NHS reckonable service, and the NHS Pension Scheme are part of the excellent rewards package where applicable, alternatively a generous in-house contributory pension scheme and life assurance are available. We even offer discounted gym membership!
