Welcome to the Hospice Support Programme
We are pleased to invite hospice teams to join the GSF Hospital Training Programme, which will give you the opportunity engage in a Quality Improvement Training Programme with your peers from other nursing and medical establishments with the key aim to improve supportive care for all people as they near the end of their lives. Using a structured approach, centrally coordinated and delivered by the GSF team, this programme will make a real difference to the hospice, and will enable people to live well and die well in the place and in the manner of their choosing.
