Wirral Hospice’s Consultant team believe Wirral Hospice can be a beacon of excellence throughout the country by:
In order to achieve this, they believe:
Dr Ahmad qualified in Pakistan, and completed his training in Leicester. He joined Wirral Hospice in 2012 as Consultant in Palliative Medicine.
Also working with WUTH, Dr Ahmad is acutely aware of the current challenges in Palliative Medicine, which include the changing NHS environment and the different agendas which partner organisations face as they strive for a unified approach.
Helping people to live well in spite of illness is the driving force behind Dr Hayle’s work.
She joined Wirral Hospice in June 2013, having trained in the North West and been a specialist registrar in Greater Manchester. When she came to Wirral Hospice, her role was to develop care for people with non-malignant conditions such as chronic heart, kidney and lung disease.
Dr Hayle divides her time between Wirral Hospice and WUTH (Arrowe Park Hospital), bridging boundaries between the two organisations.
Dr Purewal joined Wirral Hospice in October 2016, having originally qualified in Nottingham and completed her specialty Palliative Medicine training across the North West.
Dr Purewal works across the healthcare setting within Wirral and is passionate that all patients requiring palliative and end of life care are able to access and receive the best possible care.
Dr Latten became familiar with Wirral Hospice when he spent a couple of periods here during his training. He originally qualified at Bristol, and has worked at the Marie Curie Hospice and the Royal Liverpool Hospital.
Dr Latten is largely based at WUTH, but is involved with outpatients, home visits and the educational aspect of the Hospice. In particular, he trains other health care professionals and students about palliative care. He is passionate that the Hospice reaches out to help and support as many people in need as possible.
