About the role…

We are seeking Clinical Fellows to join our specialist palliative clinical teams in our Coventry and Warwick Hospice inpatient units on a full-time, 12-month fixed term service appointment. Applications for less than full time working patterns or for 4-6 month fixed term appointments are also welcome. Both roles will have the opportunity to work for up to 6 months at each hospice site, and there may also be the opportunity to gain experience within one of the NHS Trust hospitals that The Myton Hospices works closely with.

You will experience the unique clinical environment of a specialist palliative care inpatient training unit, while providing medical cover and participating in Myton’s on-call rota. You will be supervised at all times by a Consultant or Senior Palliative Medicine Doctor and will work closely with experienced Hospice Nurses.

For further details including an example timetable and information about the great team you will be joining, please see the attached detailed Job Description.
