Our Key Strategy Objectives

1) More: Support and care for more people

We will

  • Open more local Living Well centres giving easy access for more people.  
  • Employ more community Clinical Nurse Specialists to support more patients, at home. 
  • Employ more specialist staff, including therapists and counsellors to support more people at home. 
  • Extend our night care provision to more people at home. 
  • Increase the number of bereaved children we support and extend this care to children whose family member was not a Hospice patient. 

2) Earlier: Reach people earlier - enable them to live as well as possible for longer 

We will

  • Remove barriers to our services by encouraging self-referral to Living Well group sessions including exercise and singing 
  • Engage widely with our communities including developing community cafes.
  • Target people living with diseases other than cancer, such as Motor Neurone Disease. Other examples include employing a new specialist nurse to work with people with heart failure and an Admiral Nurse for dementia patients. 

3) Educate: to share and leverage our expertise

We will

  • Share our expertise in care homes and other settings, as by supporting and collaborating with others, we can enable more people to have a better end-of-life experience and reduce unnecessary admissions to hospital. 
  • Extend the work of our Education Specialists, developing the skills of healthcare professionals, both our staff and partner organisations. 
  • Get communities talking about Living Well, death and dying,, and champion open conversations. 

4) Collaborate: Collaborate and build partnerships to deliver effectively

We will

  • Involve patients families and communities in developing our services.
  • Work with neighbouring Hospices including Garden House Hospice and St Clare Hospice to achieve economies of scale of the benefit of all our patients as we share resources and expertise. 
  • Build Partnerships with a wide range of community organisations. 
  • Strengthen existing clinical partnerships and establish new ones.
