Following feedback and discussions within the Staff Training and Development group, it was identified that we needed a mechanism whereby all staff could submit ideas, suggestions and feedback.
As we value all staff input we have created a form which can be completed anonymously by staff if you have ideas, suggestions or feedback you would like to input.
Once the form is submitted it is sent to the Leadership Team group email address and it will be discussed at the next leadership meeting. All feedback forms will be logged and outcomes communicated to all staff as part of the key messages.
Where possible we would encourage staff to provide their details as we may require further details or information to progress an idea or suggestion and in that instance we would need to communicate directly with the person who has submitted the original form.
Please click the link below to complete the staff feedback form and thank you for your engagement.
Phil was shell shocked when diagnosed with Prostate Cancer three years ago, age 44. Not knowing where else to turn, Phil self-referred to the hospice, already aware of the service as his father- in- law had received support.
“When I was diagnosed I was unsure where to turn. The hospice helped me understand my diagnosis and then explained the services they could provide to support me and my family”
Shortly after Phil’s referral his specialist nurse saw he was suffering from a number of stress induced problems and suggested complementary therapy.
“I was sceptical to begin with, but I could soon feel the benefits. My stress levels decreased and my sleep dramatically improved”.
Phil received reflexology, massage and aromatherapy he also received these treatments when staying at Ysbyty Aneurin Bevan hospital.
The treatments improved Phil’s physical and psychological symptoms, allowing him to open up, discussing his fears and anxieties in a safe and relaxed environment.
“It was my oasis in life, it was me time and I didn’t get that anywhere else. I would highly recommend having complementary therapies to anyone who is unsure. They have helped me no end and I haven’t looked back since” Phil explained.
During Phil’s journey he accessed a variety of the hospice’s services including family support, nursing and therapies. The clinical team worked together providing the support Phil needed.
Phil was discharged from the hospice as his symptoms were controlled and stable. Although Phil was anxious about discharge, he worked with the team and knows that should anything change, the hospice is only ever a phone call away.
