The Hospice of St Francis Quality Account 2017-18


Hospice staff, patients and volunteers

‘Thinking back to last year when my metastatic breast cancer was diagnosed and I was in severe pain and immobile, I didn’t imagine then that I could have foreseen a situation where I feel so much better, my pain is in control, I am really quite mobile and have a reasonable social life. Most importantly I am looking at life positively. This is down to a combination of things, the clinical treatment organised for me by my oncology team at the hospital, the initial care by the Hospice community nurses and the occupational health team, and then the physio team at the Spring Centre who have got me nearly fully mobile and taking part in various activities. The continuity of coming to the Spring Centre every week has been very much part of my recovery’ 
 
‘You gave him back hope, peace and a positivity that had disappeared… the children and I gained precious hours’ 
 
‘After an extremely stressful week … St Francis was like an oasis of peace and calm… he spent his last hours being looked after with such care, compassion and dignity. Nothing was too much trouble. The staff looked after the whole family too’
