Vacancy details

We are an outstanding provider of expert palliative and end of life care and a prominent and respected charity at the heart of the local community.

No two days are ever the same at the Hospice. We cover our own inpatient beds (currently eight) see patients in their own homes, see patients as outpatients in our gym and see day patients when they arrive at our Wellbeing, Information and Support Hub (WISH) and also when they attend for blood transfusions, infusions in our nurse led Clinical Outpatient Service (OCS). We have developed a variety of groups where patients can attend with/without their carers to not only receive a high level of specialist interventions but peer support from others in a similar position.

Our Specialist Palliative Physiotherapy Service assesses and treats those with an end of life/ palliative diagnosis whether it be cancer, end stage neurological or end stage organ failure. We offer individualised management plan involving the patient and families. The service is also for patients at the end of their cancer journey from diagnosis to end stage disease, offering preventative, restorative, supportive and palliative rehabilitation intervention.  This may include those living beyond their cancer diagnosis left coping with the lasting effects of treatment. 

In this post you  will work across SW Essex and at a range of satellite venues.

You will be a registered Physiotherapist, and whilst palliative experience would be helpful it is not essential. The post is offered on 22.5 hours per week but applicants seeking other

A driver’s licence and use of own vehicle are essential.
