Come and join us, and make a difference…

We are a 14 bedded hospice, serving the communities of Merton and Sutton by supporting those with life limiting conditions to live their lives as fully as possible. Caring for people at the end of their lives can be challenging, but it can also be immensely rewarding.  Working at St Raphael’s means being part of an inclusive, friendly and forward-thinking team; we work collaboratively and every voice is important. We are ambitious; committed to developing and supporting our staff, whilst providing an excellent standard of care to our patients and those important to them.

As a newly qualified registered nurse you will provide direct personal care and interventions to patients, whilst retaining your professional accountabilities as a registrant, and co-ordinate the care given by colleagues.  This will be for a period from 6-12 months, until a series of competencies have been achieved and signed off by the Supervisor.

If you are someone who wants to help make that difference, and be a part of such a fulfilling and vital service, come and talk to us. You won’t regret it.
