Residents are being invited to help shape the future of hospice care in the region.
Having expanded services over the past year and with ambitious plans to extend its reach even further in the future, Thorpe Hall Hospice, in Longthorpe, is introducing a service user group called Impact to ensure the views of patients, carers and the community are heard.
Hospice director Jane Petit said: “As a national charity Sue Ryder has a board of trustees but Impact will be a local group working specifically at Thorpe Hall. We will be looking to the group to provide us with a patient and carer perspective on our services and plans.”
As well as attending regular monthly meetings, members of Impact may also be asked to get involved in the appointment of senior staff, attendance at internal hospice meetings and ongoing training.
A fact-finding meeting is being held at Thorpe Hall Hospice on October 13 at 11am. To come along email firstname.lastname@example.org.
