In addition to sharing our expertise through our range of courses, we offer bespoke training and clinical placements
These are aimed at helping health and social care professionals and organisations understand the services offered by the Hospice.
We want to share the knowledge we have gained after 40 years of delivering excellent, quality hospice care and have a duty to provide education. It’s important that we continue to dedicate our time to educate the current and future health and social care professionals.
