Training grant for Thames Hospice

A training grant of £111,000 has been awarded to Windsor-based Thames Hospice from Health Education England.

The grant will fund specialist training for the charity's nursing and health care teams across its services including the Inpatient Unit in Windsor, the Community Therapy Unit in Ascot and Hospice at Home.

It will be rolled out over the next two years.

Debbie Raven, head of patient and family services at Thames Hospice, said: "We are thrilled to be awarded the training grant. With an ageing population and patients suffering from more complex health issues, it is key that we continue to develop the skills and expertise of our care team.

"This grant enables us to access comprehensive training programmes on behalf of our nurses, empowering staff to provide the best palliative care to families."

Thames Hospice provides medical, nursing and therapeutic care to adults who have a life-limiting illness and their families and carers.
