Sussex Community NHS Foundation Trust’s 2015 staff survey results are better than average in almost all areas and help rank the trust as one of the top 100 best places to work in the NHS (Health Service Journal). SCFT is the first NHS organisation in Sussex to be a ‘Living Wage Employer’.

The Trust is signed up to the disability confident scheme and we guarantee to interview all disabled applicants who meet the minimum criteria for the vacancy.


 

An exciting opportunity has arisen to work within the new End of Life Care Hub in the Coastal area of West Sussex as a Telephone Referrals Coordinator. This new Hub will enable those facing ‘End of Life’ to choose where they want to receive care. The Hub will allow us, to ensure those facing end of life receive the best possible support that is right for their needs and the sensitivities of those close to them, regardless of their diagnosis and where they are being treated or supported. The Hub is a unique collaboration bringing together all the local services involved in palliative and end of life care.


This role will be part of a new team based in the Lancing Hub. The role will be primarily telephone triage, involving liaison and co-ordination of existing and new patients in their last year of life. Excellent communication and organisational skills are vital in this role alongside a desire and drive to improve and make a difference to end of life care in Coastal West Sussex. The post holder will work alongside End of Life Care Senior Nurse Assessors. If you have attention to detail and would go the extra mile we would love to hear from you.


A full induction programme and training will be offered for this new and unique role.


Staff who work for Sussex Community NHS Foundation Trust and are at risk of redundancy will be given priority consideration for this vacancy
