Specialists in palliative care

Hospice Podcast

Welcome to Resources and Education for Patients, Families and Public

At St John's we talk through many topics related to palliative and end of life care with patients, their families, friends and visitors.So, we have developed two different tools to support you.  We're still here to listen, whether that is face to face or at the end of the phone - these are simply two tools for additional help.

The Hospice Podcast
This is your gateway to the field of palliative care. Each podcast episode takes on a different topic from palliative care and is discussed by the highly experienced staff of St John’s Hospice with our Director of Communications, Marketing and Engagement. St John’s have created this podcast to share our many years of learning with you. The Hospice Podcast aims to support you through hearing from those delivering this service.
Who is the Hospice Podcast for?
Episodes are easy to follow, whether you work in health and social care, are training to do so, know someone who is receiving or you yourself are receiving palliative care – or perhaps you just want to expand your knowledge of this vital area of healthcare. Everyone is welcome to have a listen.

Since the beginning of the pandemic, many more people are open to discussing the topic of dying – whether this is in a hospice, hospital or at home. More and more people are becoming aware and open to the idea of receiving palliative care from a hospice and all that entails.
