"I travel over 80 miles round trip each day to come to work, I feel this speaks volumes in itself. My passion is to try to make a difference each day, no matter how small. To treat those in my care how my late grandma should have been taken care of, not because she was my gran, but because she was a person.
"Not only do I work as part of an amazingly knowledgeable and supportive multi-disciplinary team, but we are also able to provide holistic and individualised care for those we look after.
"Many people see hospice as a sad and gloomy place, and, don't get me wrong, tears are shed and it’s not just our patients and families that shed a tear... as a team, we are not always immune from these emotions behind the scenes. However, more often than not Sue Ryder Wheatfields Hospice is a very happy place filled with love."
Gemma Knox, Inpatient Unit Staff Nurse at our Sue Ryder Wheatfields Hospice.
