We have an opportunity for a Bank Hospice Doctor to join our Medical Team. We are looking to recruit a doctor with experience of independent work on a hospice specialist palliative care team.

This is an exciting opportunity to use and develop your skills in specialist palliative care and will require participation in a weekend rota (non-resident), and opportunities for ad hoc weekday sessional work and cover on Bank Holidays.

Weekend working comprises 2 days and 3 nights working from 5pm on Friday evening to 9am on Monday morning. Some weekend doctors work split weekends and this is arranged subject to discussion with individual doctors.

Weekend days and bank holidays require up to 8 hours on-site during the day time each day and then off-site first on-call, ending at 9am the following morning. A first on-call doctor may need to return to the hospice during the evening or overnight when a patient needs face to face review. The post-holder will review hospice inpatients and will be available to give palliative care phone advice to other professionals in the Barnsley community and hospital, as well as palliative care patients and families via the Pallcall advice line. A consultant will be available for phone advice and support at all times.

About us

Barnsley Hospice is a charity that provides specialist palliative and end of life care to hundreds of local people and those close to them each year. Our main priority is to achieve the best possible quality of life for people living with a life-limiting illness, whilst supporting those close to them during the period of illness and bereavement. As a specialist care provider, the range of skills we offer include, pain and symptom management, emotional support and end of life care. The hospice currently employs about 100 people and has a team of volunteers, based both at the hospice and within our Retail Hub.

We are committed to Equality, Diversity & Inclusion in all that we do and welcome applications from all sections of the community. We particularly welcome applications from Black, Asian and minority ethnic candidates, LGBTQIA+ candidates and candidates with disabilities because we are committed to increasing the representation of these groups at Barnsley Hospice.
