The aim of St Columba’s Hospice Care is to give everyone within our community access to specialist palliative care, whoever they are, wherever they are, and whenever they need it. At the heart of this is a commitment to try to support individuals and families in a way that best suits them, in the place of their choosing, and in a way that helps them make the most of the time they have together.
Accessibility to services is a key part of the achievement of this aim. Our Volunteer Drivers support access to the Hospice by providing a transport service for patients to enable them to attend classes in the Hospice and in the community that support their wellbeing, and enable them to access Complementary Therapy appointments.
Hospice staff and volunteers are expected to reflect our Hospice Values in the way they carry out their roles, and in their interactions with each other and with patients, family members and any other visitors.
Our Values are: Care and Compassion, Respect, Trust and Partnership.
