Rennie Grove Hospice Care is proud to be a truly unique charity. We are national leaders with our pioneering 24 hour Hospice at Home service, across Herts and Bucks, with four daytime adult nursing teams, a night team for adults and a specialist paediatric team providing 24/7 cover. Last year we looked after more than 1,700 people in their homes, allowing 85% of those who wished, to die at home. Combined with our wide-ranging day hospice services in Herts, our absolute focus is to deliver specialist patient centred care.

We have an exciting opportunity for a Director of Nursing and Patient Services to drive forward our new strategy with passion, building on the great success of our existing post-holder who is retiring.

As a member of the senior management team, you will be responsible for developing key services, leading on the Patient Services strategy and contributing to our organisational strategic plan to care for more people year on year.

We are looking for a suitably experienced and qualified registered nurse, with clinical credibility in palliative care, who is able to provide high quality, strategic, professional, innovative and empowering nursing leadership, ensuring we consistently deliver excellent care to our patients and continuously strive to improve standards.

Positively representing Rennie Grove, this is a highly visible role both externally and internally, as you take the lead to develop and motivate the clinical workforce. The post holder is expected to undertake service development to improve service delivery, so experience of leading successful change and developing clinical practice is essential.

If you are committed to delivering excellence in patient care we would love to hear from you. For informal visits and questions about the post, please contact Stewart Marks, Chief Executive on 01727 731006.
