Community Services – Your Stories

Changing people’s perceptions is one of the biggest challenges we face in raising awareness of the help we can provide to those living with a life-limiting illness.

A row of nurses

We have found personal stories help the most in overcoming people’s fears. We have created this area as a place to share the stories and experiences of patients, their family members and carers who have spent time using St Clare Hospice Community Services.

If you are interested in sharing your experience of our care to help others, please get in touch with our Communications Team.
