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.

We pride ourselves on being a great place to work and we're always looking for outstanding people to join our team at the hospice across all areas of the charity.
Caring for a loved one who is terminally ill is incredibly tough but one local charity helps to make this experience easier and is currently recruiting for people to join its outstanding team.
Prospect Hospice has been caring for local people for over 40 years and is rated as outstanding by the Care Quality Commission. All the services they offer to the community are thanks to the dedicated team that works for them and next week the charity is hosting two open events for nurses and healthcare assistants to find out more about working for them.
The events take place on Thursday 15 June, from 5pm to 8pm and on Saturday 17 June from 10am to 2pm at the hospice in Wroughton and those already working as a nurse or healthcare assistant will be able to tour the hospice and talk to staff about the roles available.
Carolyn Bell, director of patient services
Carolyn Bell, director of patient services at Prospect Hospice said: “Working at the hospice is highly rewarding and you play a truly meaningful role when you support someone at the end of their life. It’s a real privilege to be able to care for those who are terminally ill and support their families at what can be the saddest and hardest part of their life. We care for patients and their families and loved ones in equal measure – working together to make every day count.
“We have some fantastic opportunities available to join our specialist team and really make a difference to those in your community. You don’t have to have worked in end of life care before as full training will be given to all those who join us and we also offer a rewarding development programme.
“We look forward to meeting anyone who would like to know more about working at the hospice at our open events next week, but, if you’re unable to make those dates, please do still get in touch via our website or give us a call so we can chat to you more about working with us.”
