Work­ing to­gether

Paisley Daily Express - - Front Page -

Staff from Ren­frew­shire’s much-loved hos­pices have teamed up with sim­i­lar fa­cil­i­ties to launch a new na­tional part­ner­ship.

Scot­land’s Hos­pices To­gether is a part­ner­ship of 10 hos­pices from across the coun­try, in­clud­ing Pais­ley’s Ac­cord Hos­pice and St Vin­cent’s Hos­pice in How­wood.

To­gether they hope to raise their pro­file and or­gan­ise joint fundrais­ing cam­paigns.

John Brady, chair of Scot­land’s Hos­pices To­gether and head of fundrais­ing at St An­drew’s Hos­pice, in Air­drie, said: “The peo­ple of Scot­land re­ally cher­ish their lo­cal hos­pices and many sup­port­ers of­ten go to ex­tra­or­di­nary lengths to fundraise for them and show their love.

“Through join­ing to­gether in a new na­tional part­ner­ship, Scot­land’s Hos­pices To­gether hopes to grow that sup­port na­tion­ally and high­light the im­por­tant work of hos­pice care across the coun­try.

“Scot­tish hos­pices cur­rently pro­vide free, per­son-cen­tred and fam­ily-fo­cused pal­lia­tive and end-of-life care to more than 20,000 peo­ple ev­ery year and make a hugely pos­i­tive im­pact on the lives of pa­tients and fam­i­lies ev­ery sin­gle day.”
