Hospiscare wants your views

Sidmouth Hospiscare is asking people what they value about its service as it launches a consultation process.

In making plans for the next five years, the trustees and staff would like to get the views of as many people as possible on the care it provides – as well as ideas for developing the service ‘to meet the changing needs of our community’.

Chair of trustees David Lee said: “Planning for the longer term is an essential part of the role of the trustees of Sidmouth Hospiscare and we believe it is really important, as part of this process, to gather the views of local people and organisations associated with or connected to the Hospiscare service.”

It is an independent charity which provides specialist palliative care and support to those diagnosed with a life-threatening or life-limiting illness.

It has a base in May terrace, but its main aim is to support patients within their own homes.

Feedback forms to gather views are available from Sidmouth library, and online from the Hospiscare website at www.sidmouthhospiscare.org.uk.
