Registered Nurse - Rapid Response Service (Out of Hours)

Perm as and when contract

Closing date: 4th December 2019

Marie Curie is here for people living with any terminal illness and their families. We offer expert care, guidance and support to help patients get the most from the time they have left.

The Marie Curie Rapid Response Service, in partnership with Ealing & Hounslow CCGS, delivers rapid and flexible out of hours nursing care and support for terminally ill patients and their carers.  We are a community based palliative care service whose aim is to respond quickly to support palliative patients and their carers within the community, usually in the patients’ own home. We aim to prevent inappropriate admission to hospital and the choice for the patient of preferred place of care.

The service works in collaboration with the NHS, Social Services and other providers of end of life care in the community.

The Marie Curie Registered Nurse will work alongside a Health Care Assistant in the delivery of the service, at the same time as two other R.R.S teams, out in the community, covering the county. The Registered nurse reports to and will have the support of the Clinical Nurse Manager.

We are an out of hours service covering evenings and nights Monday to Friday and 24 hours at weekends and Bank Holidays. Applicants should preferably have palliative care /end of life care experience.

Physical activities required by the role include but are not limited to patient handling, frequent standing, sitting, walking, climbing up and down stairs, kneeling and crouching to attend to patient needs (including in an emergency situation) and load handling.

For an informal discussion about the role, please call Nicola Wigmore and 07515 133220.
