The Hospice

Strathcarron Hospice’s vision is to provide specialist palliative care services for the people of Forth Valley and Lanarkshire to promote the delivery of palliative care across this area.

Their aim is to sustain, develop and deliver a full range of quality services – in-patient, day hospice, community, bereavement, pastoral care, lymphoedema, research and education. In order to achieve this, they need to carry out activities in four clearly defined but inter-linked areas. The focus of all their activity will be the patient, families and carers.

Irene McKie, the Chief Executive, is responsible for the day-to-day running of the Hospice together with Billy Andrew, Director of Operations, and Marjory Mackay, Director of Nursing, as well as a team of highly dedicated staff. The Hospice requires a large team to provide the high levels of service expected by our patients.

To provide support to patients and families at such an important time in their lives, we have a multi-professional team that focuses not only on the physical needs of patients but also on the social, spiritual and emotional aspects of experiencing illness.

We are also well supported by a team of non-clinica l staff to keep Strathcarron running smoothly. Our Education team helps to develop our own staff, share knowledge with other organisations, medical students and those involved with research in palliative care.

The team at Strathcarron includes Doctors, Nurses, Social Workers, Chaplains, Bereavement Support Workers, Complementary Therapists, Physiotherapist, Occupational Therapist, Art & Craft Therapists, Pharmacist, Lymphoedema Staff, Education & Research Staff, Catering and Domestic Staff, Administrative & Secretarial Staff, Maintenance Staff, Volunteers and Fundraising.
