Description: This is an exciting and rewarding time to join an incredible team who are finalising the build of their brand new state of the art hospice to add to their already impressive facilities. It will incorporate 16 in-patient bedrooms, increase day hospice services, additional family support and beautifully landscaped gardens and grounds. It will soon be bringing together a range of specialist services to support people through the journey of their illness, and as the end of their life approaches.
As a charity, their care is completely free of charge and their aim is to make every day count, and to make the journey as comfortable as possible.

It'll provide support for people at all stages of their journey - inside the hospice, within the community or their own home - and care for their family and friends making this journey with them.
