Scotland’s first modern hospice, St Columba’s Hospice Care first opened its doors in 1977. Over the years, it has grown and evolved into an exemplary provider of specialist palliative care for thousands of people with life-limiting illnesses in Edinburgh and the Lothians annually, while also providing support to their relatives and loved ones. We currently have the following opportunity to join the Hospice team:
