Southend University Hospital is looking to appoint two enthusiastic Consultants to join our Specialist Palliative Care Team.
The successful candidates will provide specialist palliative and end of life care services to adults across South Essex.
The team is currently comprised of seven Consultants in Palliative Medicine, each with lead responsibility for one clinical area but cross covering and providing on call cover to all areas.
One post also includes working with a local hospice, Fair Havens.
The successful candidate will represent Fair Havens Hospice in regional palliative care networks. This is an exciting opportunity to be involved with the hospice as it moves into a brand new, £17.2 million purpose built building in spring 2020.
The three NHS trusts that currently run Broomfield, Southend and Basildon are planning to become a new single NHS organisation by mid-2019.
Working as one team, we will provide high standards of care and services for our 1.2m residents. Using the same processes ensuring services run smoother. Single leadership will speed up decision making. Combined corporate services will reduce duplication and cut running costs. This means more money for front-line services.
These positions have Royal College approval pending.
