The Hospice has a permanent team of four senior doctors – the Medical Director, two Consultants and an Associate Specialist – who provide specialist medical support to all aspects of our clinical services.

They also provide supervision and training for a specialist registrar in palliative medicine, and for qualified doctors training to be general practitioners who rotate to the hospice during their training.

The senior doctors are regularly involved in teaching on courses run by the Education Department of the Hospice and attending meetings with GP and district nurse colleagues. We work closely with the Palliative Care teams at our local hospitals, where one of our consultants also works one half-day per week.
