I came to Guernsey in 2007 working at the PEH on an acute medical ward. Although overwhelmed with Guernsey`s scenery and beaches I felt as if I had a greater purpose in life. I was introduced to Jo and the staff at the hospice through a friend. I started doing some bank work as a Band 5 nurse and soon realised that this is why I decided to do my nurse training. It is a privilege to be able to look after patients and their families, to give them the support, reassurance and care that they deserve. A post became available as the nurse manager and I applied for it. Since then I have not looked back.
Working at the hospice enriches my life. It is a pleasure every day to come to work and know that the nursing team we have are here because they want to be here and will give their best for the patients and their families.
I have been able to continue my development and will be completing a 2 year diploma course in counselling in May 2013. With this learning experience we introduced a further bereavement follow up service for relatives and friends.

One of the biggest changes to data Privacy law comes into effect
on the 25th May 2018. The General Data Protection
Regulation also known as GDPR means that as individuals we will all
have more control as to how our personal data is used. Also it
ensures that organisations such as Les Bourgs Hospice put robust
systems in place to meet the requirements of the regulation.
Therefore we will in due course be publishing on our website and in
all the information we provide a privacy notice reflecting what we
do with personal data, how it is used and your rights as
individuals under the new law.
