The Berkhamsted-based Hospice of St Francis is launching a pioneering project which is hoped to improve patients’ experiences of dying in hospital.

The palliative care centre off Shootersway is working with Watford’s Peace Hospice Care on a year-long ‘hospice champions’ scheme, which will see specialist mentorship by a team of hospice workers on eight Watford General Hospital wards.

The idea is to encourage hospital staff to deliver compassionate care and communication with end of life patients and their families.
