I would like to support CanSupport's entry for the 2009 InDiya Shine Awards. I am Chief Executive of St Christopher's Hospice, Founded by Dame Cicely Saunders in 1967 and widely recognised as the forerunner of the hospice novement. I have done some training for CanSupport and have been on home visits in Delhi with their nurses. The programme is outstanding. They have highly skilled staff and an excellent volunteer programme. Their Day Care is creative. They offer outstanding support to a varied patient population, including some of the most deprived and vulnerable.
The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...
skilled, professional, highly motivated with compassion, integrity and tenacity.
