Hospice in search for new Clinical Services Director

Have you always wanted to develop hospice services to really fit the needs of people, but never had the opportunity?

We want someone who can help us change the way people think about hospice care.

We have just developed a new strategy based on the experiences of people living with dying, death and grief.  We know that we are on an exciting path, which will see us implement this strategy as a new model of hospice care. A model which inspires a movement of social change that puts death back into the heart of the community. Our Equip Provide Strive strategy threads through everything that we do.

It is our ambition that this model will integrate specialist care with our community development work, shifting our emphasis from providing services to equipping people. Our strategy is underpinned by recognised public health and asset based community development approaches.

Building on the amazing feedback that we have already had about the work and testing we are doing in our community, we are looking for someone with passion and enthusiasm who understands the importance of working with the assets that already exist.

Coivd19 has shown us how communities can rise to the challenge of supporting each other through a crisis. Our new model gives us the opportunity and framework to build on these strengths. Could you lead our people and work with our community to implement this new model?

We need someone who can build good networks and relationships with local health and social care colleagues, as well as the community we serve.
