St Elizabeth Hospice improves life for people living with a progressive or terminal illness. Our work is centred on an individual’s needs, which means specialist support, whenever and wherever it is needed, whether at home, in the community or at the hospice. Through medicine and therapy we ease pain; we give life purpose and make life liveable.

We have our own dedicated team of Healthcare Assistants, however from time to time we require additional team members to ensure we continue to provide quality care within the Hospice.

We are seeking ‘Bank’ Healthcare Assistants with an interest in palliative care to work within our multi-disciplinary team who provide physical, psycho-social and spiritual care to patients and their families in the 18 bed In-Patient Unit in Ipswich.

As a ‘Bank’ Healthcare Assistant, we will call you to offer occasional shifts, this may be planned or at short notice, for a full shift or as ad hoc additional hours, so flexibility and commitment is essential.

Our most recent Care Quality Commission report rated the hospice as “Outstanding”

The ideal candidate will be a committed, motivated and highly flexible individual with NVQ Level II in direct care or equivalent.

For more information please contact Hannah Doe, IPU Junior Sister on 01473 707000, to arrange an informal meeting/tour of the hospice and to discuss opportunities. Also, please see the job description and person specification.
