The wellbeing of our staff is very important to us. We organise a variety of activities to encourage physical and mental wellbeing. These include a lunchtime walking group, choir, yoga, rounders, Irish dancing, complementary therapies, ‘coffee mate’ and weekly ‘catch up with cake’. In addition, we hold staff conferences, wellbeing days and staff social events.
Wellbeing is supported through clinical supervision for those in qualifying clinical posts. In-house support can be provided for all by the spiritual care and bereavement teams.
There are a number of reflective and peaceful spaces throughout the Hospice and its gardens that staff are encouraged to use.
