I’m Kirsty. I worked on the In-patient Unit at the hospice for four years.
But I've recently moved over to the hospital team, based at Blackpool Victoria Hospital.
Here at the hospital, people may have been referred to us just a few days after receiving their diagnosis. Or they may be really unwell with their condition while they’re still having treatment. You’re just looking at patients from a completely different angle as you do from the hospice.
Our job is very much about supporting patients by complementing the care they receive in hospital, working with other teams across the hospital and offering our support and expertise.
