St Andrew’s Hospice and Care Plus Group have been working in a formal partnership for the last few years and as a direct result of this have seen some amazing progress. This is something both organisations are very proud of and has resulted in key improvements in the delivery of care and support for local people.

 Both organisations are keen to develop our partnership further and an exciting opportunity has arisen to do something slightly different. In order to strengthen our partnership approach and to move towards a more integrated model, we have created a joint post in the Director of Clinical Services which will be responsible for all clinical services across Palliative & End of Life Care. This will include Hospice adult inpatient services, Macmillan SPCT, Haven team, Hospice children’s services, Health, Support and Wellbeing teams, and Living with and Beyond team.

 St Andrew’s Hospice and Care Plus Group are the local leading providers of palliative and end of life care, offering care and support to both adults and children and their families. With an excellent reputation both in the local community and beyond, we reach a significant number of patients and their families in North East Lincolnshire and our wider catchment area, of Lincolnshire, Hull and East Yorkshire for our children’s services.  In addition, our purpose built hospice houses a growing community hub which offers practical and holistic support through the specialist teams, and services, carer groups and outpatients as well as being open to the local community.

As our Director of Clinical Services, you will ensure the delivery of a coordinated, effective and efficient service which reflects the aims and philosophy of the partnership and meets and maintains legal and regulatory requirements. Developing and maintaining relationships with our partner organisations, you will ensure the population in our areas experience high quality, consistent and valuable services. With overall responsibility for all clinical departments, you will ensure a coordinated and consistent management approach through effective leadership, motivation and support.

It’s an exciting time to be joining the partnership, as we have ambitious plans to extend our services. There are plenty of challenges ahead as service demands rise and funding comes under increasing pressure. That’s why you will need to be exceptionally organised and an outstanding communicator who can inspire and empower your team to meet every one of those challenges and shape our future based on a shared pursuit of excellence.

 

The successful candidate will:

  • hold a professional health or social work qualification, be educated to degree level in a relevant area and be a registered with the appropriate professional body.
  • have extensive post registration clinical experience some within an adult or children’s palliative care setting.
  • have a clear vision, ambition and passion for delivering exceptional patient experiences.
  • have a comprehensive understanding of palliative and end of life issues.
  • effectively lead, manage and motivate a large diverse team, valuing contribution and empowering all to achieve.
