We hear a lot of myths about St Gemma’s or hospice care in general. Common misconceptions out there include ‘I bet it’s a scary place’, ‘you have to have private health insurance’, or even ‘they only care for Catholics!’
Thankfully, we are pleased to say that all of the above are not true. And our new Myth Busting campaign will hopefully address some of these misconceptions and rumours over the coming year.
An important part of our work is to ensure that the community understands what we do, who we care for, how you can access our services and how we are funded. So we are tackling some of the misconceptions out there head-on, and will work hard to spread the ‘truths’ about St Gemma’s and the amazing work we do.
