End of Life Partnership Training - East Cheshire Hospice

End of Life Partnership Training

Health and social care professionals attended the latest East Cheshire Hospice workshop about palliative and end of life care.
The monthly lunchtime sessions bring together the clinical community to share knowledge and experience.
Hospice staff collaborate with partners such as East Cheshire NHS Trust and The Christie to deliver the workshops.
Sponsorship by Porthaven Care Homes, which runs Prestbury House, Macclesfield, and Astbury Mere, Congleton, helps cover on-going costs.

The Hospice uses a combination of in-house and external experts to deliver the training workshops which started a couple of years ago.
Alicia Whittaker, the Hospice’s Training and HR Advisor, said: “The workshops are designed for all health and social care professionals looking to broaden their palliative care knowledge.

“Staff attend from a variety of different organisations, including health care assistants and nurses, the NHS, care home workers, pharmacists, GP practice nurses and student nurses.”

Michelle Hinds, Client Services Manager at Astbury Mere, said: “We’re delighted to support East Cheshire Hospice which provides such a fantastic service for the local community. As a care home, we’re passionate  about providing the best care and are pleased to be part of this initiative.”
