Trinity Hospice wishes to appoint a dynamic, motivated and committed individual as its new Medical Director to help lead the organisation forward at an exciting time in its development.

Working alongside Trinity’s Directors including its Clinical Director and CEO, as well as Palliative Care Consultants and Doctors, the successful candidate will provide strategic leadership to Trinity Hospice, around palliative and end of life care, including how specialist palliative care services should work alongside and influence health and social care colleagues at a time of significant change.

The Hospice is based in Blackpool but serves the wider geographic area covering the entire Fylde Coast and beyond, with a community of c350,000 including the attractive towns of Lytham and Poulton-le-Fylde. The hospice has both an adult and children’s unit alongside a wide range of other services. Trinity has an excellent reputation as a forward thinking, high performing and progressive organisation and for being a great place to work. Trinity has the resources to be innovative in partnership with others including Lancaster University and the CCG sponsored Fylde Coast End of Life Strategy Group.
