Willowbrook Hospice

Willowbrook Hospice, located in Prescot, cares for patients with life limiting diseases living in St Helens, Knowsley and the surrounding areas.
One of our Sisters, Sr Zita volunteers as part of a multi-faith chaplaincy team at Willowbrook Hospice in Prescot, Liverpool which this month has been awarded an outstanding status by CQC.

CQC said:
“The hospice truly respected and valued patients,
families and carers as individuals who were
empowered as active partners in their care, practically
and emotionally, by an exceptional and distinctive
service”

Here are some excerpts from the report that focus on the work of the chaplaincy team working at Willowbrook:

“Staff understood and respected the personal, cultural, social and religious needs of patients and how they may relate to care needs. Patients’ spiritual needs were discussed in handover meetings, which were attended by representatives from the hospice’s multifaith chaplaincy.
The hospice’s multifaith spiritual care team attended handover meetings and visited all patients as needed or requested. Patients, their families and carers could access the multifaith quiet room.
The hospice had accommodated remembrance memorial services for patients, and a wake for a long-standing staff member who had died. Remembrance books were held in the multifaith quiet room.”

Willowbrook Hospice in Prescot, Liverpool has just been praised by CQC for its service.
