Marie Curie is leading the way on Dementia care for terminally ill patients in Wales.

Marie Curie is the first organisation in Wales to launch an award-winning Dementia service to support patients and their families. We are offering an exciting opportunity to share your passion, energy and drive for working with people living with Dementia alongside influencing, shaping and improving their care towards the end of life.

You will support the Senior Dementia Nurses to manage a caseload of patients across either Pembrokeshire, Ceredigion or Carmarthenshire. Referrals will be received from a range of care professionals, including GP’s, District Nurses, Social Workers, CPNs and others to ensure the right care package and support is being provided, at the time the patient needs it.

A confident communicator, calm decision maker and member of the wider multi-disciplinary team, you will need some experience and knowledge of working in the community or dementia services. Some palliative or community care experience is desirable but not essential.  You will need good communication skills and the ability to prioritise your work and respond to changing demands.

This is a great development role for someone ready to take their next step up in dementia health care support and to contribute to end of life care in the community.

In return, you will receive support from the Senior Dementia Nurses and the Clinical Nurse Manager for Mid and West Wales through practice development, clinical supervision and continuing professional development. There is also a bursary scheme for professional studies.

If you have been an active member of the NHS Pension Scheme within the last twelve months you will have the option to re-join the NHS Pension Scheme with Marie Curie.

A full driving licence with access to a car insured for business use is essential, although a pool car scheme is in place. You must be willing to travel across the county to patients’ homes, hospitals and other venues as required. 

For an informal discussion, please contact Zoe David, Nursing Services Facilitator on 01554 783615.

Every day of your life matters – from the first to the last. When you work for Marie Curie, you understand that better than ever. We’re a passionate, committed and diverse team of more than 4,400 staff and 12,000 volunteers, here for people living with any terminal illness, and their families. We offer expert care, guidance and support, to help them get the most from the time they have left.

Everyone knows our daffodil, but it’s our warmth, creativity and care that touch lives. Here, we take the time to really get to know the people we care for and those who love them. And we do whatever it takes to give them the final days and hours they deserve.
