We are seeking an enthusiastic individual to join the well established, consultant led specialist palliative care services in Bradford. The hospital palliative care team works in Bradford Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust covering two hospital sites. The Marie Curie Hospice is a purpose built unit in the city centre offering 16 inpatient beds as well as extensive outpatient and day therapy services. The NHS community palliative care team and palliative care support team are also based there. Working closely together, the services deliver high quality, integrated palliative care to a culturally and ethnically diverse population and have developed innovative models of care for people with non malignant disease. There are strong links with the Yorkshire palliative medicine training scheme and the local GP training scheme.

This is a new post to support the development of outpatient services at Marie Curie Hospice. The individual will join the three consultants currently working in the hospital, community and hospice. The contract will be held with Bradford Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust.

Applications should contain names and addresses of three referees (one of which should be your current or most recent employer), details of GMC registration and CCT in Palliative Medicine (or evidence of eligibility to apply for CCT).

Candidates are encouraged to visit by prior appointment.
