As a Registered Nurse with Marie Curie, you'll be there for people in their time of greatest need. STARS provide free specialist care and support to patients with terminal illnesses whilst offering vital emotional support for their families. It's all about giving them the best possible quality of life. The support we offer is tailored to meet individuals' medical, social, spiritual and emotional needs.

An exciting opportunity has arisen for enthusiastic Registered Nurses (RN’s) to join our STARS team working across Liverpool. The role of the STARS Registered Nurse involves collaborative working with District Nurses, Community Nurse Specialists and other members of the wider Multi-Disciplinary Team. This facilitates maximum support of those individuals deemed to be in the last 12 weeks of their life, whilst supporting their family/carer.

The Registered Nurse will perform an initial assessment and frequent reviews, as the individual’s health care needs change. This will involve liaising with the STARS partner agencies and other key workers to devise specific and individualised plans of care. Health Care Professionals will follow this documentation to ensure safe delivery of care in their own home.

Other responsibilities include incident reporting, liaising with Safeguarding and attending collaborative working meetings to help optimise patient safety and comfort. Sign-posting for bereavement support is also an integral part of the role.

Although this role involves minimal clinical duties, the Registered Nurse is responsible for supporting and teaching the STARS HCAs in all aspects of their role. Team working and peer support are paramount to this role.

This will include weekends as well as weekday working. A driver's license and the use of a car insured for business use, are essential.

As an RN you will come with an RGN level 1 registration and will be able to demonstrate a sound understanding of palliative care and be able to assess and review the needs of patients at the end of life, experience of community working is desirable.  NVQ Assessor qualification or equivalent is also desirable or willingness to work towards.

In return you will have the opportunity to access a generous portfolio of training and education, bursary scheme, management support, clinical supervision and an occupational pension scheme (NHS pension transferable).

For an informal discussion please contact STARS service manager Patricia Rowland on 0151 801 1441 or 07851385105
