Prospect Hospice is the leading provider of education and training for end-of-life care in Swindon and north Wiltshire. Working closely with you, our colleagues within partner organisations, we want to ensure that the very best care is available to everyone facing the end of life. This is why we provide education and development opportunities, all of which aim to encourage learning and build confidence in end-of-life care and support.

Our team of skilled clinicians are at the heart of our education programme and work alongside our education team. They are passionate about sharing their skills and experience, ensuring all activities are delivered with integrity and that they are relevant to local need too.

Please read through the courses we offer at Prospect Hospice and other locations to find out how we can help you to develop your professional end-of-life care skills.

You can book courses and pay securely through this website. Alternatively, contact us at or on 01793 816183 for more information.

We will always be happy to come to you and discuss your team’s requirements.
