Why we need more nurses

What do nurses mean to you? People tell us that St Clare nurses are skilled, caring, compassionate and leaders. They are also needed, now more than ever.

Nobody wants to die in pain, away from their loved ones, or in unfamiliar surroundings.

St Clare nurses are supporting people facing death and dying in your community. We know there is more we can do, and we need your help.

  • 8 people will die in your community today
  • 6 of them wanted to die at home
  • But only 2 of them will get to

By putting the right people, in the right place, at the right time, we can help to change this.

With more St Clare nurses, we will be able to support more local people to have the best possible death, pain free, and in the place they wish.
£18 could pay for one nurse to deliver an hour of care
£36 could pay for two nurses to deliver an hour of care
£54 could pay for three nurses to deliver an hour of care

Join our nursing team

If you’d like to join our St Clare Hospice team in a nursing role, we’d love to hear from you. You don’t need to have any experience in palliative care; just a passion to make a difference to the lives of local people – and their friends and family.

Our Nurses Are campaign is helping to fund new nursing roles, with excellent development opportunities, here at the Hospice, which we are currently looking to recruit to.

If you’d like to find out more, have a question, or would like to arrange an informal chat with a member of our HR team, please get in touch. We’d love to hear from you

What are our plans

Registered nurses provide care in all of our clinical teams, working 24/7 to provide vital care to patients, and support to their families. We are seeing an increased need for specialist nursing care for people with complex life-limiting illnesses. That is why we have a vital plan to meet this need right now, with the expansion of our nursing team.

Over the next few months we will be recruiting for more nurses to join our Hospice at Home, Inpatient Unit and community teams. This will enable us to reach more people, earlier on in their journey, and provide them with holistic support at the end of their life.

But we cannot do this work without the help of our supporters.

How can you help?

There are so many ways that you can support our Nurses Are campaign, to fund more St Clare nurses in people’s own homes, and in your hospice.

Make a donation today, fundraise with your school, community group or business, and help us be there for everyone who needs us.

Thank you.
