Consultants in Palliative Medicine within Eastern Region

Want to make your mark in Palliative Care? Time to consider a move to the East Coast!

  • Be at the forefront of designing and implementing new services
  • An unprecedented time of investment and service development in the area
  • CQC rated ‘outstanding’ hospice
  • Beautiful Suffolk coast
  • Supportive and ‘down to earth’ medical teams

Three substantive Consultant posts are available due to reconfiguration of services and recent expansion of the team following retirement.

After 30 years of delivering excellent care, St Elizabeth Hospice continues to drive forward innovation and development of services. This hospice post supports the development of new models of care, both in the Ipswich and East Suffolk locality and further up the coast to the Yarmouth and Waveney area.

This investment in the medical teams gives you the opportunity to be part of something special, building on the existing services and devising new services in the neighbouring locality. This beautiful area of the country supports a good work-life balance and is easily accessible to Cambridge, Norwich, London and beyond. There are strong links between local acute and palliative care providers and with University of Cambridge Medical School and University of East Anglia Medical School, and the new University of Suffolk with its Integrated Care Academy.

The successful candidates will join an established team of Consultants. They will be employed by St Elizabeth hospice, supported by NHS Terms and Conditions.  A range of posts and job plans are available and there is flexibility around how this is delivered; interested candidates are strongly encouraged to approach us for discussion.
