Chestnut Tree House is the children’s hospice for East and West Sussex and South East Hampshire, providing specialist palliative care for children and young people with life-shortening conditions.

This is an exciting role for an experienced nurse to provide nursing care in the community setting. The post holder will predominantly work in the community, providing leadership to healthcare assistants, managing a caseload and providing skilled palliative nursing care to all Children Young People (CYP’s) accessing Chestnut Tree House services.

There will be opportunities to work across children services and support inhouse care. The post holder will have responsibility for key working, supporting both children and families living with a life limiting condition. This role will suit a dynamic individual who will be able to deliver respite care in the home, take Children / Young People on fun outings and access day care at the hospice.

Childrens palliative care involves delivering short respite breaks aimed at having fun and living well with life limited conditions as well as end of life care in the community providing a 24-hour service.

We are striving for excellence and have new workstreams to support transition, palliative care, learning disabilities, patient experience, and patient safety. The post holder will have the opportunity to develop skills and contribute to these areas of development.

The post holder will have a key responsibility in networking and developing collaborative relationships across health, social care and other voluntary services.

The post holder will be supported with a comprehensive clinical skills training programme and will also be developed and supported to provide end of life care in the home setting.

For an informal discussion about the role please contact Clinical Managers, 01903 871822.

Due to remote location and lack of public transport, access to your own transport is essential.

Closing date: 12 October 2023
