St Peter’s Hospice is a well-established charity, operational for nearly 40 years, focussed on supporting and delivering high-quality palliative and end of life care to patients with incurable, progressive disease in the wider Bristol area. Care is delivered through a variety of means including community services, day services, advice line and a 15 bedded inpatient unit (currently 10 bedded unit until completion of our inpatient unit refurbishment in October 2018).

We are looking to welcome a Specialty Doctor in Palliative Medicine to our medical team at St Peter’s.

This exciting new post will suit a doctor who already has some experience, or a special interest, in palliative care. You will join the multi-professional team in delivering excellent clinical care to patients and families. The role involves working across a range of services and taking part in our medical on call rota. 

There will also be opportunity to take part in delivering education in partnership with colleagues from our well established education centre, and to be involved in service and quality improvement activities. 

You will need to have full Registration with the GMC and full MRCP(UK) or MRCGP. A palliative care qualification or experience in specialist palliative care would be advantageous but is not essential.

We are open to considering part-time applicants interested in job- sharing.
