Wirral Palliative Care Education Hub

Wirral Palliative Care Education Hub is a partnership between Wirral Hospice St John’s, Wirral University Teaching Hospital NHS Foundation Trust (WUTH) and the Specialist Palliative Care Team from Wirral Community Health and Care NHS Foundation Trust (WCHC). Our collaboration delivers education sessions for those with an interest in palliative care.

Wirral Palliative Care Education Hub is designed for people with an interest in palliative care, whether they are fully qualified or undertaking further learning to enhance a career in health and social care. Sessions are delivered by experienced medical, clinical and allied health professionals, who outline their own work and current best practise, across a range of physical, spiritual, emotional and psychological, treatments and therapies for people with life-limiting illnesses.

Providing learning and development opportunities for our staff (and volunteers, where applicable) is an essential part of all of our organisations in delivering the highest quality care and support services for our patients, their families, and those important to them.
