Why I joined St Andrew's Hospice
“It’s the best move I’ve ever made”
It was the reputation of the hospice that made me aspire to work here more than anything. I knew that hospice care is the ultimate that we can give to our patients, and I wanted to work more in end of life as it was something that has interested me for a long time. I had to dip in and out of palliative work within the ward environments I’ve been in before, but it was definitely something I’ve always wanted to do full-time.
It can be quite difficult day-to-day at times, but we have a really good team and we really support each other. I wouldn’t say end of life is something that really affects me, the job is just something that is in you. My mum is a nurse too and she always dreamt about working in the hospice, so it has always been talked about growing up.
“I love my job”
Providing those special touches is what we’re all about here at St Andrew’s Hospice. It isn’t like a hospital environment: we’re able to do much more, which is why I love it! I love my job – you will have to prise me away from this place!
