Salary: £45-47k/year depending on experience
We have an exciting opportunity for a dedicated and experienced Registered Nurse to join a leading hospice charity as a Quality Lead Nurse. Based in Lymington, this hospice is committed to providing outstanding holistic care tailored to the individual needs of the adults and children with terminal or life-limiting conditions throughout the New Forest, and as such, requires a Quality Lead Nurse that will continuously implement and improve the key quality initiatives that maintain the highest standards in the face of changing demands.
This position would suit experienced nurses who seek a compromise between managerial duties and the provision of clinical care, and who make it their mission to always strive for the best quality of care possible for all.
This is a full-time position with a 37.5-hour working week within office hours. The role will be weighted, with 2 days per week spent in the clinical departments of the hospice, where you will work alongside the inpatient, day hospice, and community teams to support and embed clinical quality initiatives and develop awareness of any quality issues.
The remaining 3 days per week will be spent desk-based in an office setting where you will be developing new quality improvements and initiatives, managing clinical policies, developing the annual audit plans and quality accounts, and ensuring compliance to all CQC regulations.
The position offers 28 days annual leave plus bank holidays, as well as life assurance cover, a health cash plan, and the continuation of the NHS pension if applicable. The hospice is a uniquely supportive environment and provides extensive education and development opportunities to aid your continuous professional development, and the site itself offers free on-site car parking and subsidised meals on-duty.
