Group Visits & Placements

We take pride in the quality of service and support we provide for patients and families at Dorothy House. And we’re keen to share our expertise and knowledge with new and aspiring health and care professionals.

Group Visits

Dorothy House Hospice welcomes visits from groups and are able to provide half-day or whole-day tailored visits.

We can offer a range of sessions covering a wide variety of topics directly linked to hospice care. These sessions are all led by our health care professionals here at the hospice and can provide further information about end of life care and the work of Dorothy House.

  • History of the hospice
  • Palliative Care
  • Overview of services
  • Community Outreach
  • Tour of Dorothy House

Please note that group visits generally do incur a fee.

Clinical placements

We provide an opportunity for professionals to understand hospice life and discover what palliative care entails.

  • We typically offer placements to student nurses, social workers, GP registrars, physiotherapists and occupational therapists.
  • Placements usually last a week and cover all areas of hospice clinical practice.
