Overview of Post: The Job Description is ideally for a 10.5 PA post but those wishing to work less than full time will be considered. It is a new post aimed at increasing the ability of the senior medical team to deliver the support required for the implementation of the new 7 year Dorothy House Strategy. Responsibilities The post holder will be expected to work as part of the senior medical team as the hospice expands its delivery of services and influence in accord with our strategy. Aside from contributing to clinical work in all settings within the medical team, it is envisaged that other responsibilities could include: Co-ordination of medical attachments/visitors medical students; GP Trainees and ad hoc others such as Care of the elderly/oncology trainees Contributing to the research agenda Developing partnership working with General practitioners and Nursing Homes Contributing to the delivery and development of a variety of educational activities Medical representation on internal governance and working groups established to develop service provision

4 Currently each of the members of the senior medical team, takes a lead for either: the Hospital Team, the In Patient Unit, or 1 or 2 of the 3 Community Teams, alongside other areas of designated responsibilities e.g. Clinical Audit and Quality improvement; driving the development of the Outcomes Assessment and Complexity Collaborative providing cross cover when required. Dorothy House Hospice Care There were 1954 patient referrals to the hospice care services in , and 554 client referrals. All patients are currently referred with the approval of their GP although the referral may come from a variety of sources. 21% of referrals were for patients with a non-malignant disease. The In Patient Unit (IPU) has beds for ten patients. In we admitted 236 patients, with an average length of stay of 11.1 days. 29% were transferred from an acute hospital. 43% of those admitted were discharged. There is a 24-hour palliative care Advice Line providing advice and support for health professionals, families and carers. During office hours these are taken by the Contact Centre, Out of normal working hours by the nursing staff on the IPU, and are referred on to the covering doctor as required. In , the service received an average of 133 calls per month. The Day Patient Unit (DPU) - on 3 days of the week this unit runs as a specialist unit with full access to the MDT. An additional day is run for those patients who do not require full MDT support. Up to 11 patients are supported each day. A review of day patient services was completed in 2016 and plans are well underway to develop and improve co-ordination of ambulatory Live well services. Community support services include: Dorothy House Nurse Specialists (DHNSs) (18 wte[tn2]) who are currently based as two teams in the Outreach centres. Our strategic direction is to develop local place based multi-professional teams who will deliver services in partnership with others (both statutory and voluntary) across four geographic areas. A well-developed Hospice at Home service which is co-ordinated by RNs and employs experienced nursing assistants to provide night cover, up to 24-hour care at home for the last two weeks of life, and limited respite care. An RN currently co-ordinates care 8am-7pm Monday-Friday and 10am-4pm at weekends and bank holidays. In this service delivered 22,076 hours of home care. DHHC is currently involved in projects with all 3 CCGs and the acute hospital extending the reach and potential of this service via an Enhanced Discharge Service; extended CHC funding and potentially introducing further skill mix within the team. A Bereavement and Children s service is run within the Family Support Team. The Education, Learning and Research department is very active and organises an extensive programme of education for all levels of health and social care staff, including Link Nursing Home and Residential Home schemes. It is a focus for development within our strategy as we look to develop a national and International reputation for Education and Research. Discussions are underway with Bath University and the University for the West of England in relation to establishing a Faculty. Following a 12 month project our Contact Centre is to be developed and our new Clinical Coordination Centre (functioning as a Single Point of Access for new and existing patients and their families) is to be implemented in April. Multi-disciplinary meetings to support this team currently take place 3 times a week. It is anticipated that this will ultimately become a 24/7

5 service and will work closely with the newly commissioned Out of Hours and 111 service in Wiltshire and BaNES. Dorothy House is currently at an exciting point in its history with a budget for of expansion, development and change. Amongst these changes will be the addition to the medical team of 2 new Advanced Nurse Practitioner posts providing 1 st on call cover and the development of plans to provide a 7 day service across all disciplines, including routine admissions to the IPU at weekends. Medical Services: In the hospice, the medical team are responsible for the care of in-patients and also provide medical advice and support for DPU patients, Outpatients, the 24-hour Advice Line and all the other services provided by DHHC. The Consultants and Associate Specialist provide medical support to the community DHNS teams by providing weekly caseload reviews and domiciliary visits. 3 Community Coordination Centre multi-disciplinary team meetings also occur each week for the triage of referrals and the discussion of ongoing complex patients and their families. A senior doctor is allocated each day to respond to calls for advice from the community (GPs, DHNS s, District nurses) between 9 and 5, and one to respond to urgent requests for IPU admissions. There is a strong educational component to the medical service. Medical students from the University of Bristol currently attend the hospice twice a week from September to December each year. The palliative care education programme for Bath GPVTS doctors in the Health Education South West Severn deanery has been running for many years. This includes education sessions for ST1s and 2s, and a programme for ST3s who come to the hospice for week-long placements preceded by an annual study day. We have also arranged placements for Specialty trainees working at the RUH in Care of the Elderly, Oncology, and Haematology. We also offer educational events for GPs, both as part of the regular Bath General Practice Education and Research Trust (BGPERT) programme, and as one off events at practices if requested. The Medical Team actively support the Education department in the provision of a range of bespoke education events and programmes. We have also provided End of Life education workshops to GP Trainers, and Educational and Clinical Supervisors at the RUH, and training days to Specialty trainees and F2s working within the Severn Deanery. Royal United Hospital, Bath The RUH Palliative Care Team is currently situated in zone A of the hospital, close to the Oncology department and Pain clinic. The Team consists of the Lead Nurse Palliative and End of Life Care (Helen Meehan); Dorothy House senior doctors (hold honorary contracts with the Trust), 5 clinical nurse specialists (3 wte), and a palliative care administrator (0.6wte). There are close links with the Pain clinic and the Oncology department (regular meetings with both), and links with hospital Nurse Specialists. Weekly attendance at the Gynaecology MDT and support for ward MDT/white board meetings. There are currently 5 sessions of consultant support to the RUH Palliative Care Team a week. The Palliative Care Team works in an advisory capacity providing information, palliative care expertise and support to patients, carers, and staff for patients with life-threatening illnesses throughout the RUH. The Medical Assessment Unit and Oncology wards are visited every day. The team promotes awareness and expertise in palliative care and end of life care through training and quality improvement initiatives. There is a regular programme of education for junior doctors, nurses and therapists across the trust. The team supports the ward ambassadors for end of life care who act as link nurses in promoting best practice in end of life care on the wards.

6 The team continues to lead on the Conversation Project initiative to support earlier recognition of patients with end of life care needs and compassionate conversations to support advance care planning. The team developed Priorities for Care' documentation to support patient centred care in the last days of life and continues to evaluate this through audit. The team is available Monday to Friday from 8.30am-4.30pm. Advice during out of hours is currently provided through the Dorothy House 24-hour Advice Line, although the team will be introducing a 7 day service of the nurse specialists later this year. There is daily communication and mutual support between the team and liaison with all the services at Dorothy House. The same clinical database, SystmOne is used by both DHHC and the Palliative Care Team. There are no designated palliative care beds in the RUH. Resources Available a) Administrative Support/Office Accommodation There is a full time administrative support to the medical team provided by 2 Medical Secretaries who each work 3 days per week and a full time PA to the Medical Director. Office accommodation, will be provided at Winsley. Computer links and workstations are also available at both Outreach centres. b) IT Competent IT skills are required. SystmOne is the clinical database used. Sharing of medical records between all SystmOne users (many GPs; Community services; and the RUH SPCT; etc.) is encouraged. All areas within the hospice, including the IPU, are essentially paperless. The results of all investigations performed locally can be accessed within the patients SystmOne record. Microsoft Office products are used within DHHC. Remote IT access is available. c) Diagnostic Facilities Full diagnostic services are available at the RUH including ultrasound, CT and MRI scans, and laboratory services. These services are readily available to all hospice patients d) Academic Facilities There is a palliative care library at Dorothy House.
