Fixed term: 18 months contract
The Hospice of St Francis is committed to providing the highest quality of care to patients with life limiting illness. We have established palliative rehabilitation services in our Spring Centre (out-patient services). The development of this specialist palliative rehabilitation team was in response to a local gap in palliative rehabilitation services, acknowledging the importance of promoting supported self–management in palliative care.
We are now looking for an enthusiastic and motivated Physiotherapist or Occupational Therapist to work as a Rehabilitation Project Manager on an exciting new project supported by the St James’ Place Foundation. This project will run for a fixed 18 month period and will focus on establishing palliative rehabilitation in the Hospice In Patient Unit.
The role is to facilitate the organisation, development and successful completion of the project. The post holder will work with an experienced and established AHP team ensuring appropriate recommendations are established so that in the future patients who are living with a life limiting illness will receive high quality rehabilitation to make certain they obtain maximum function and quality of life and ability to achieve their individual goals. Whilst experience within palliative rehabilitation is desirable, sound and proven project management skills are essential. An ability to influence others and work across multidisciplinary and organisation boundaries is vital. The post holder will be based at the HoSF but some travel may be required.
