Clinical Blog

Welcome to the new ‘clinical blog’ of Nightingale House Hospice.

This is an exciting development for our clinical team, I like to think of it as a ‘day in the life of’ or a ‘fly on the wall’ addition to our usual website services information.

This blog will be updated at least twice a week and hopefully more often to share with you the inside story of the types of activities our team are involved in each day, supporting our patients and their families. Often there are anecdotes or events that we don’t get chance to share in our newsletters or stories in the local press, so this new ‘blog’ will mean you get an up to date insight into our day to day life at the hospice.

As I’m new to writing in this way, please feed back any comments and also any general questions about our services you may have and I will do my best to respond in future posts.

I hope you will soon look forward to reading it as much as I know I will enjoy writing it!
