At Saint Catherine’s we are doing everything we can to keep our patients, families, staff , volunteers and supporters safe at this difficult time.
Our key clinical services are still running, which means that patients are still being cared for in the hospice and at home.
However, in line with Government guidance and with safety paramount, we have taken the decision to reduce some face-to-face services and restrict visitors on site. Also, our hospice shops will be closed for the time being and we have postponed all of our fundraising events that were planned during the next few months.
Every decision being made is in the best interests of our patients, families, volunteers and staff.
We need your continued support and help more than ever as we continue to pay and support all our members of staff – we appreciate every donation, every message and every offer of support.

Clinical Nurse Specialists

We have two dedicated teams of Clinical Nurse Specialists who work at Saint Catherine’s, who specialise in neurology and community palliative care.

Clinical Nurse Specialists for Neurology

The community neurology nurses provide specialist palliative neurology advice and guidance to patients in their own homes. Working with hospital teams and other community services, they support neurology patients and their families, including those with illnesses such as Parkinson’s disease, Motor Neurone Disease and Multiple Sclerosis, to cope with the progression of their disease.

Clinical Nurse Specialists in Community Palliative Care

Saint Catherine’s community specialist palliative care nurses work alongside patients and families enabling them to achieve their personal choices and discuss future care planning. The team provide specialist skills in helping to manage difficult physical, psychological, emotional and spiritual concerns.

We work closely with GPs, district nurses and other members of the health and social care teams to ensure that care and support is well co-ordinated.

We feel privileged to see patients in their own homes and work alongside patients and families to meet their individual wishes.
