Job Details

An opportunity for 2.8 WTE substantive registered clinical practitioners has arisen to join the Digital Care Hub team to support the delivery of the new Harrogate Goldline Service- commencing in Summer 2024.

The Goldline service is a 24/7 service, with the aim of supporting palliative care and end of life patients in their own place of residence where it is clinically safe to do so, reducing the number of unnecessary attendances at A& E and unplanned admissions, and supporting their advanced care plans.

This is a new service and as such we need additional staff to offer greater support to the new innovations in our work.

Applicants will need to have an innovative approach to work and be receptive to constant change. There is a requirement for applicants to have a history of working with palliative care patients.

We are starting on our exciting journey and our posts will offer exciting new opportunities for health care professionals, working at band 6 level, who are interested in new ways of working who are keen to support the development of the new service and delivering high quality safe care to patients.
