Strathcarron Hospice at Home win the National Lottery Award for Best Health Project

NAHH would like to send a big thank you to all our delegates who very kindly voted for Strathcarron Hospice at Home to achieve a National Lottery Award for Best Health Project.

We are delighted to tell you that they have won!

There is an awards ceremony to be televised on the BBC on 21st September – with the whole Strathcarron Hospice at Home team attending.

Jenny Stevenson, Lead Nurse says;

“Strathcarron Hospice at Home has been funded by the National lottery for 3 years and a further 2 years if they evaluate well . So it is wonderful to be 14th out of 700 to the top 7 and then because of the public vote the winner! The hope is that the publicity gained will benefit all Hospices nationally. This is a wonderful accolade and recognition for the work we do in the Hospice at Home Team here at Strathcarron. In addition it will raise the profile of all Hospices at Home services nationally, bringing hospices out into the community.”

Call for Trustees - Newly formed Charitable Incorporated Organisation

Hospice at home is a core primary care service in enabling end of life care choices at home and forms a key component of commissioning intentions across the United Kingdom.

The National Association for Hospice at Home (NAHH) is a Charitable Incorporated Organisation (CIO) - Registered Charity Number: 1158250 and a membership Association dedicated to supporting and promoting hospice at home services at a local, regional and national level.

The Association is managed by an elected Executive Committee of Trustees who work with our member services and other national organisations to develop service models and partnerships to improve patient care across all settings.

The Association is seeking to expand and develop our Executive Committee to enable progression and significant developments, thereby achieving our aspirations and strategic vision as a CIO. We are seeking expressions of interest from individuals within our member services preferably who have expertise in quality assurance, fundraising, communication, website management and marketing specifically.
