Thank you so much for your interest in this exciting new role of Head of Clinical Community Services at Ashgate Hospice.

We have been providing specialist palliative and end of life care for patients and their families across North Derbyshire for over 30 years. Last year, we looked after 1,647 patients at home, 363 patients on our inpatient unit, and we supported 585 bereaved family members. I am hugely proud to be the Director of Quality and Patient Care within such an exceptional organisation.

Ashgate is exceptional because of our patients and their loved ones and the trust they place in us every day, and because of our staff and volunteers and the compassion and humanity that they bring. In our 2021 people survey, 90% of our staff and volunteers said that they would recommend the hospice as a place to work or volunteer, and 96% would recommend Ashgate as a place to receive treatment and care.

We are committed to the continued development of our workforce and to seeding leadership and learning at all levels throughout the organisation. Ashgate plays a unique role in the community, not only as a provider of hospice services, but also as a large local charity and employer. Our shops and coffee shops are visible local representatives of our brand and they are also part of the social fabric of their neighbourhoods. We are greatly blessed to be well-loved and well supported by people who have experienced our care, by our local community and by our many corporate supporters.
