As well as the care and support we provide to patients and families, Herriot and its family of services also work collaboratively with other professionals and organisations to complement our services, ensuring everyone can access high quality, personalised care at the end of their lives.
We collaborate with partners to improve the end of life and emotional wellbeing care and support available to the patients and clients of today and future generations.
We are keen to work closely with partners in the NHS, local authorities and other private and voluntary care providers involved with our patients and the general provision of care and support services.
We want to work in collaboration with such health and social care partners so that every person gets the personalised care they need. Our aim is to offer services that complement the help and support already provided by other agencies.
We are also working hard to influence the planning and development of end of life care and emotional wellbeing support services across the areas we serve. Much of this work is focused on achieving seamless delivery of services between agencies, finding joint working opportunities that ensure local people’s needs are met, developing strategies to cope with the increased need, and securing the monies needed to fund these initiatives.
If you’re looking to gain experience in the fields of end of life care, emotional wellbeing and bereavement support, marketing, fundraising, or HR, then we’d love to hear from you. A placement with our family of services, which also includes Just ‘B’ and Saint Michael’s Hospice, could be just what you are looking for.
We receive many applications for placements so please remember that it takes time to consider requests and put the necessary arrangements in place. Chat to us about when you may be able to begin as part of the team and we’ll work with you to make the opportunity as rewarding as possible. Email firstname.lastname@example.org
Learning is at the heart of our vision to ensure everybody across our community receives the care they need to live their last days, weeks and months with respect and dignity. As specialists in our areas, we are proud to share the skills and expertise that we have acquired over 30 years of caring for people living with terminal illness and bereavement.
Across our family of services, education and training provision includes tailor-made training sessions, placements and work experience.
