A fantastic opportunity is now available for a Registered Nurse (RN Adult) to join a leading palliative care specialist at their CQC-“Outstanding” unit in Bury St Edmunds.

Working in the IPU as a Registered Nurse, you will be a highly valued member of the MDT enjoying low patient to nurse ratios and working collaboratively to support symptom management for a range of palliative conditions and make a real difference in quality of life.

The long-standing charity supports those with life-limiting conditions and their loved ones in West Suffolk and South Norfolk. Through specialist medical care, emotional and bereavement support, liaison, and professional education services, the charity ensures service users receive the compassionate support they need.

The IPU is a specialised environment for intensive short-term care, such as to help patients manage difficult and complex symptoms, to support adjustment to new developments before returning home, or to receive specialist end-of-life care for advanced illness in full comfort and privacy.
