Dr Kershaw's needs you!

Date published: 01 April 2020

Dr Kershaw’s has launched an urgent appeal for healthcare professionals based in Oldham to help their local Hospice in its time of need.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Hospice, based on Turf Lane in Royton, is in urgent need of support in several areas to boost services in providing excellent End of Life Care to the people of Oldham.

Dr Kershaw’s Hospice is calling for anyone with a nursing or healthcare professional background to help and is seeking nursing staff (Healthcare Assistants and Staff Nurses) to support the Hospice’s range of services, with roles being offered on a shift by shift basis.

Dr Kershaw’s is also asking for members of the public who have recently left a healthcare organisation who have recently considered returning to work, to consider putting themselves forward to help their local Hospice in its time of need helping to play a crucial role in continuing to offer palliative care to those in need within their community.

Adele Doherty, Clinical Matron, said: “Dr Kershaw’s has over the past 30 years earnt an excellent reputation within Oldham for providing high-quality patient care and family services.

"Working for Dr Kershaw’s is a labour of love which means you can make a meaningful difference to the lives of patients and their loved ones within our local community at a time where they need support the most."
