Palliative Care Social Worker – Band 7
Join our team
Closing date: 30 November 2023
We have a dedicated team of Nurses and Palliative Care Social Workers who are here to support our patients and their loved during their time with us. Our Social Team assists with a range of bespoke support that is based on our patients’ individual needs. From financial and benefits support, to combatting loneliness and isolation, the team will ensure that people are supported with what matters most to them during their time with the hospice.
Our Palliative Care Social Workers at the hospice specialise in working with our patients who are at the end of life, their families, those they are close to and their communities. Using their specific skills and knowledge to help people to deal with the impact of a palliative diagnosis, including emotional support, to have a good life and a good death.
The Palliative Care Social Worker Band 7 will work in close partnership with other professions, agencies, organisations and as part of the wider community in which they are based. The role will also lead and support the Band 5 Palliative Care Social Worker and support the Befriending Team and Volunteers.
The successful applicant will also be responsible for providing a teaching element in their role in Safeguarding, Mental Capacity, and the new Liberty Protection Safeguards and leading the link nurse roles for Safeguarding across the hospice to ensure high standards of care to provide our patients and loved ones with the right support at the right time.
