St Andrew's Hospice Feb 13


“Overall, we found evidence at St. Andrew’s Hospice that people using the service are supported by a committed and motivated staff group, and are treated with respect. We did find that improvement is required in some areas, which include the recording of medication given to people who use the service and ensuring staff are regularly appraised. We expect St. Andrew's Hospice to address the requirements as a matter of priority.”
