Macmillan’s End of Life Care Programme Lead spends a week shadowing clinical teams at Rowcroft Hospice in Torquay

Last year Macmillan’s End of Life Care Programme Lead, Adrienne Betteley, spent a week shadowing the clinical teams at Rowcroft Hospice in Torquay. “I think we’ve all got the same goal” said Adrienne.

Her aim was to ‘dig a bit deeper’ and learn more about the role of hospices and smaller charities within local communities.

Gill Horne, Director of Patient Care at Rowcroft Hospice, explains, “Adrienne spent time visiting patients in their own homes with our Community Teams and Hospice at Home nurses. She also spent time in our Inpatient Unit and Chronic Oedema Clinic, something she hadn’t experienced before.”
