Doctors and Consultants

The Medical Team is lead by Dr Alice Jordan who is a Consultant in Palliative Medicine. She is employed by North Tees and Hartlepool NHS Trust and works four sessions per week in the Hospice. She is also based with the Hartlepool Community Specialist Palliative Care Team for two sessions a week.

Dr Jordon is supported by Staff Grade Doctors who have a passion for providing care to palliative patients and their families.

The Hospice medical team is also made up of junior medical staff with a full-time Foundation Year 2 Doctor rotating on a four monthly basis. These doctors are in their second year of medical training after qualification. They are employed by North Tees and Hartlepool NHS Trust and are supervised by Dr Jordan.

In addition there are sometimes doctors in their third or fourth year of training who are planning to become GPs who are based in the Hospice part-time. They spend the other part of their job with a GP Practice in Peterlee.

There also may be a Specialist Registrar in Palliative Medicine based at the Hospice. These are doctors on a four year training course to become a Consultant in Palliative Medicine and will have been working as doctors for at least four years. They are also supervised by Dr Jordan.

The on-call medical team provide care and support to patients outside of normal working hours. The on-call team is made up of the Hospice staff grades and a rota of other medical professionals who have a special interest and knowledge in palliative care including GP’s and Foundation Doctors.
