Hospice launches first-ever magazine

Update, a new magazine produced by John Taylor Hospice, has been unveiled this autumn.

The new-look publication – introduced as part of the hospice’s 110th anniversary year celebrations – is packed full of news about exciting upcoming events and personal stories. The magazine will be mailed to hospice supporters twice a year and is also available to enjoy online.  

Louise Allen, PR and Media Officer at John Taylor Hospice, said: “We are delighted to launch Update magazine and introduce a new way to keep supporters up to date with our latest news, service developments and upcoming events. We are so grateful to patients, families, fundraisers, hospice staff and volunteers for sharing their stories and photos in our first-ever magazine.

“A special thank you also to people who have responded to the magazine mailing by making generous donations online and by sending cheques through the post. Your kindness is helping John Taylor Hospice teams make a difference for hundreds of families every day and ensures that hospice care continues to be there for people when they need it most.

“We really hope you enjoy reading our magazine and we would love to hear your feedback. Please do get in touch and share your thoughts by emailing enquiries@johntaylorhospice.org.uk”

What our patients think

“The care was second to none”

“At such a heartbreaking and difficult time, the nurses and care assistants knew exactly what to do and to say – we’d have been lost without them. The care they provided for my beautiful wife was second to none and I’ll be forever grateful.”

Roger Perks

“Nothing is too much trouble”

“I can’t thank hospice teams enough. From fitting grab rails in my house and ordering a reclining bed, reviewing of all my medication, providing me with new medical equipment and even helping to organise domestic help for us at home – they’ve covered everything but are always willing to do even more.”

Jackie Bannister

“I don’t know where I’d be without them”

“The support I get is truly is invaluable and I honestly don’t know where I’d be without them. I’m able to talk openly about my illness and ask for advice and support if I need it. I’ve made some incredible friends and the hospice is a very special place full of laughter and kindness. “
