Partnership and Collaborative Working
St John’s Hospice is proud to work in partnership with a range of health and social care organisations in order to promote effective and efficient care for our patients.
We work with other specialist palliative care providers, as well as organisations that provide more generalist end of life care in a number of ways including education.
Current examples include:
- Housing 21 – We jointly host Housing 21’s Dementia Voice End of Life Care Nurse post within our Community Macmillan Clinical Nurse Specialist Team. The post aims to ensure that the specialist palliative care needs of people living with dementia are identified and addressed.
- West London Cancer Network - The Network brings together all the lead cancer clinicians, nurse specialists, managers, and commissioners in West London. A number of our staff are members of strategic network groups focusing on improving clinical practice.
- NHS Camden Provider Services Palliative Care Team – We work together to provide out-of-hours medical cover.
