Hospice Care Week runs from 9-15 October and is a chance for us to celebrate all the work hospices do, and the people who do it, to make sure everyone can benefit from the very best end of life care.
Here are some 'spotlight on' stories of some of our amazing team... a variety of roles who all come together to make us the hospice that we are... ensuring that dignity, safety and confidentiality of all patients is respected at all times and that all patients receive the highest possible standard of physical, psychological and spiritual care.

Here our CEO, Louise Sinclair, explains how to access hospice care.
"We rely so heavily on the community whether that’s businesses right through to individuals giving us small amounts. Every little bit helps to keep the hospice going - thank you very much."
Thank you so much to Motorfinity for producing the video.
For many people, working in a hospice can be the most rewarding and satisfying job of their career. But right now, hospices are facing growing pressure to fill roles and make sure that hospice staff are there for patients and their families when they need it most.
We want the government to make sure that funding, training and partnership working is a priority, so that hospices can continue to attract the very best staff.
This #HospiceCareWeek, join us and @HospiceUK and celebrate all the people that make up hospice care.
