“There have been a lot of changes and developments to help us manage the current Covid-19 outbreak. Anybody who enters the main hospice building is being screened and temperature checked before they enter, we have restricted visitors to the hospice and any staff that can possibly work offsite are doing so. Our main priority has been infection control and making sure our patients, their families, our staff and volunteers and the wider community are safe.”
Sarah Green, 22, from Chesterfield, began working in Ashgate Hospicecare’s Events Team in October 2017. Sarah talks about how her grandmother, Susan Green, was looked after by the Hospice and how volunteering within the Events Team led to a permanent paid role as Events Assistant.
