It's a really exiting time to be joining Sue Ryder Leckhampton Court Hospice


“It’s a really exciting time to be joining Sue Ryder.”

Says the new Sue Ryder Leckhampton Court Hospice Clinical Lead for Hospice at Home and Day Hospice, Emma Wright. “We’re growing our care services so we can be there for more people in our local community. It’s a real opportunity to make a big difference.”

Emma, a married mother of one from Cheltenham, adds “I have always wanted to work for Sue Ryder. Sue Ryder Leckhampton Court Hospice has such a strong local presence and is well loved by many because of the expert and compassionate care it gives. I’m thrilled to be here in this new role managing the growth of our community services.”

Thanks to a donation from The Summerfield Charitable Trust, Sue Ryder Leckhampton Court Hospice is currently expanding its Hospice at Home team from one team to three, meaning its specialist and expert palliative care can help more people stay at home at the end of their life, preventing admissions to hospital and other care settings.

As part of the growth, the Gloucestershire hospice is recruiting Senior Nursing Assistants and Nursing Assistants to join their expert team. For details of the available jobs click here

Emma said, “We’ve already recruited five fantastic new members to our Hospice at Home team, but to achieve our vision of more care for more people we need more people to join us.”

“I’d love to hear from anyone who is passionate about providing excellent care, wants to be part of a great team of skilled care professionals and lastly but by no means least will be proud to be a Sue Ryder ambassador.”

“In return Sue Ryder offers a supportive and welcoming environment. I have only been here two weeks and I have been so warmly welcomed. The team here are so kind and supportive, everything you would expect from a hospice really!”

“The training is second to none too. Working with Sue Ryder will give you the opportunity to really develop your healthcare expertise.”

With more people expressing a wish to remain at home at the end of their life, Sue Ryder Leckhampton Court’s Hospice at Home team is receiving more and more referrals.

Emma added, “Hospice at Home care is all about helping people remain at home and be cared for in their own familiar surroundings. It’s helping to fulfil those final wishes. It’s making a huge difference to families when they are at their most vulnerable. If we can support them then... well, it’s an amazing privilege really.”


“When we go in we see families breathe a sigh of relief. It takes that responsibility of being the main carer away. It allows people to become wives, husbands, fathers, sons, mothers and daughters again.”

The team’s support is highly valued, Emma adds, “Feedback tells us what a difference our care makes. Families tell us their loved ones wanted to stay at home, and that we helped them do that. They tell us that we helped them become a family again. That’s pretty powerful.”
