More funding for specialist palliative care training

The Henderson Educational Foundation was set up in 2018 in memory of husband and wife, Jim and Karen Henderson. Karen was a former matron at the hospice and Jim a former Trustee of the charity.

The fund aims to provide grants and bursaries for ongoing professional development and specialist training for staff and volunteers working at Florence Nightingale Hospice. In turn this will improve the quality of care given and provide improved services to patients, their carers and families.

In November it was agreed to increase this fund from £4,000 per year to £10,000 per year. This will mean that in 2023 more nurses and other healthcare professionals will benefit from specialist training courses, helping them to increase their knowledge of palliative care and providing them with the latest pain management techniques.
