St Andrew’s Hospice has played an essential role in the region since 1979, serving both adults and children with life-limiting illnesses from North and North East Lincolnshire, the wider Lincolnshire area and Hull and the East Riding.
Our slogan of ‘Making Each Day Count’ is much more than words; it is the reality for the adults and children who access our services.
We provide care – which is free at the point of delivery – for people with a wide range of conditions, including cancer, Motor Neurone Disease, cardio-vascular diseases, Multiple Sclerosis and Parkinson’s Disease. Our care is available in a range of settings, from overnight care and respite to day unit visits and care in people’s homes.
St Andrew’s is independent but we work collaboratively with health care professionals in the NHS as well as organisations such as Marie Curie and Macmillan to ensure a seamless delivery of care. As a charity, we are very reliant on volunteers to carry out our work, and this is underpinned by a core of paid clinical and non-clinical staff.
Working for St Andrew’s Hospice
As an employer, we are committed to the concept of a multi-disciplinary approach, both at clinical, non-clinical and managerial level. We have about 100 staff, including 45 nurses, enabling us to provide 24-hour care seven days a week.
Staff, regardless of grade or discipline, must be sympathetic to and be able to project the philosophy and concept of hospice care.
St Andrew’s Hospice is very much a community and all members of staff are encouraged to support the various social and fundraising events which are part of its daily life.
