If so we’d love to hear from you. St Clare’s Hospice is an independent provider of Specialist Palliative Care situated in Jarrow, Tyne and Wear. Our Hospice forms part of an experienced and enthusiastic Palliative Care network working between Hospice, Hospital and Community under the leadership of two Palliative Care Consultants employed by South Tyneside NHS Foundation Trust.

This post would suit both GP’s wanting to gain more Palliative Care experience and Doctors wishing to pursue a career in Palliative Medicine.
