Above all, you'll always know that as you develop your career with the Hospice you'll also be making a difference to our patients and families who remain firmly at the centre of all that we do.

Our Clinical Team

The Hospice offers excellent careers in palliative care, covering a range of medical, nursing and multi-professional disciplines. This includes doctors, clinical nurse specialists, registered nurses, healthcare assistants, allied health professionals and a family support team.

Non-Clinical Team

In addition to clinical roles our team is made up of a wide variety of different disciplines from administrative staff, fundraisers, finance and I.T. as well as support staff, including cooks, housekeepers and porters. Their practical support keeps the Hospice running smoothly and allows us to do what we do best - care for patients.


Our team of nearly 600 volunteers are one of our greatest resources.  Working with our paid staff, they give their valuable time and skills to help us support our patients, their families and carers in a variety of ways.  Each role requires different skills and strengths.
