Louth Community Services
Grimsby Road, Louth, LN11 0SX
With an ageing and growing population, there are more and more people living in Lincolnshire with life-limiting and terminal illnesses. These people require a range of personalised services which St Barnabas can provide from their base in Louth.
The Louth building has treatment rooms, quiet areas, a large lounge and a clinical room for outpatient appointments. It also features a stunning garden with views over the open countryside.
Marie Wootton – Hospice at Home Nurse
“I wouldn’t change my team for the world. We look out for each other, we support each other, and everyone is just so lovely.”
Marie Wootton is a Registered General Nurse who works in the Hospice at Home team based in Louth. She is one of three Nurses and three Health & Rehabilitation Support Workers who cover a geographical area from Caistor to Spilsby.
Marie said, “I joined St Barnabas eight years ago as a Health Care Support Worker, but it was the passion of my manager that empowered me to go back to university and study for my Nursing role. St Barnabas were so supportive and flexible with my working hours, and I’m so proud to have been given a job on their Nursing team once I was qualified.
“My role enables me to meet so many lovely people around the county, and I love the variety it offers. Sometimes one patient will take up my whole day if there aren’t any ‘just in case’ meds or if they need to be written up for a syringe driver. Other days, I can see three or four patients. It’s so important to manage my time wisely so that I’m always doing best by my patients.”
