Our blog is for our staff, volunteers, patients and supporters to share their thoughts, feelings and experiences of John Taylor Hospice.
Every day here at the hospice and in the local community, our teams are working hard to make a difference to the people we care for and their families.
Everything we do also impacts on us - and for our staff, our blog is an opportunity to share this with you. Some blog posts are anonymous when colleagues feel more comfortable not being named. At other times staff are happy to include their names and role.
Patients and their families are not identified unless they give us specific permission to do so. Patient names included in staff blogs are therefore not the patients' real names and we may change some details to ensure their identities remain confidential.
We hope you enjoy finding out more about the experiences of people at John Taylor Hospice.
