Job Ref: 
Salary: £160 per session worked (invoice required)

Hours:           As and when required


Katharine House Hospice is a registered charity with a 10-bedded In-Patient unit, a Day Therapies Unit (currently not running a face-to-face service), a Hospice at Home Service, and a Lymphoedema Clinic. On-call support to the inpatient unit is by telephone advice from a local rota of Consultants in Palliative Medicine.

We are looking to recruit a doctor(s) to provide as needed sessional medical cover, which is to cover annual leave and will become available immediately.

Excellent communication skills, compassion and the ability to work well within a multi-disciplinary team are essential requirements.

Katharine House Hospice has a management and multi-disciplinary team wholly committed to providing the best quality care to those members of our local community with life-limiting illnesses. The ethos and general atmosphere of the organisation is reflected by the feedback we receive from both the Care Quality Commission reports and from our patients and their families.

Katharine House Hospice is keen to promote palliative medicine in the wider community and is involved in undergraduate medical education to students from both Keele and Birmingham Universities and also offers educational support to junior doctors at the University Hospital of North Midlands. We have an active audit programme and are planning to develop research projects.

The successful applicant(s) must have full GMC registration and medical indemnity cover, and experience of working in palliative medicine is desirable but not essential. An enhanced DBS check is also required.
