Amazing opportunity to join our Hospiscare@Home team in Seaton and Axminster!
Health Care Assistant – Hospiscare Band 3, from £18,813 per annum
Full time, 37.5 hours/week, 5 days over 7
This is a fantastic opportunity to join Hospiscare’s passionate Hospiscare@Home team in the role of Health Care Assistant. The team has a first class reputation for delivering an excellent standard of evidence-based palliative nursing care and clinical advice for adults registered with a GP in the Seaton and Axminster area. As a Health Care Assistant, you will work alongside registered nursing staff in the multi-disciplinary team, helping to provide holistic and person-centred care and support for patients with complex life-limiting illnesses.
We are looking for experience of delivering care in a clinical setting, either Acute Trust or Community Services, alongside awareness of the complexities of working with individuals at times of distress and conflict. Some experience of working in specialist palliative care would be an advantage. Applicants will be expected to have the ability to work equally well on their own initiative, managing a delegated workload and escalating issues as appropriate, or co-operatively as part of the team. Developed communication and IT skills are also essential to be effective in this role.
The role involves travel within the community setting and participating in the seven day service provision. In return you will be joining a clinical employer of choice in the region, receiving a competitive salary and range of benefits, including great opportunities for career development.
