Two healthcare organisations in South East Lincolnshire are pooling their expertise to improve end of life care services in the region.
St Barnabas Lincolnshire Hospice and Butterfly Hospice are working together to address the challenges faced by people who use local services. The project, Shaping and Improving End of Life Care in South East Lincolnshire, aims to improve services for those who are affected by a life-limiting, palliative or end-of-life condition. The project will speak to patients directly, their family and friends.
Mandy Irons, General Manager for St Barnabas Hospice, said:
“Working together with the Butterfly Hospice on this project will enable us to find out what is important to people with a live limiting, palliative or terminal diagnosis and ensure that we can find ways of working together to provide seamless care and support when people need us the most. Gathering feedback on what support is already there and what people need to be available, will help to inform us about what matters the most.”
Linda Sanderson, Butterfly Hospice Trust Manger, said:
“It has been really good working with our colleagues at St Barnabas on this joint project, it is so important to find out people’s real experiences of palliative care, this enables the sharing of best practice and the development of further services.”
