About us

This is a fantastic opportunity to work at a leading Hospice who aspires to a world in which all dying people and those close to them have access to care and support, whenever and wherever they need it. St Christopher’s Hospice was founded in 1967 by Dame Cicely Saunders and formed part of the modern hospice movement. Proudly celebrating over 50 years and with a turnover of over £20 million, we provide invaluable care and support to over 7,500 people across the five London Boroughs of Bromley, Croydon, Lambeth, Lewisham and Southwark.

Your new role

We have a truly rewarding position that has come up for a passionate, Registered Nursing Associate, to join our supportive and dedicated group of nurses within our In-Patient Unit.

To succeed in this role  

You will be a Registered Nursing Associate on the NMC register, with ward / in-patient experience, and be passionate about ensuring that excellent standards of care are achieved.
