St Wilfrid's staff development

We pride ourselves on delivering specialist care to our patients and their families. We're also passionate about influencing end of life care in all settings.

Maintaining and developing our staff's knowledge in the specialty of palliative care is very important in ensuring the continued delivery of a clinically effective service. We attend key conferences in the UK and Europe and ask staff to feedback their learning and insights into daily practice and strategic development.

At conferences we also share the initiatives we are proud to be undertaking at St Wilfrid's.

Our doctors are currently presenting two posters at the 15th World Congress of the European Association for Palliative Care (EAPC) taking place on 18th-20th May 2017.
