Today is International Nurses' Day - as 12th May is the anniversary of the birth of Florence Nightingale. Here are just some of our nursing team, who work throughout Dorset as Weldmar Community Nurses, Day Care Nurses and in Joseph Weld Hospice in Dorchester.

Weldmar's Director of Nursing and Patient Services, Ruth Burnhill said "I would like to celebrate all nurses on Nurses’ Day. The role is always more than a job, it is a vocation and requires very special qualities of compassion and empathy, as well as the considerable skills of providing nursing care. I am proud of all the nurses at Weldmar Hospicecare Trust because of their dedication and commitment to looking after patients and their families at such a difficult and sensitive time and am privileged to be a part of this care".

We are the only agency providing specialist palliative care in north, south and west Dorset.
Introduction
Weldmar Hospicecare Trust is an independent charity working in Dorset. All our services are provided free of charge. 70% of the funds we need is raised locally; the rest is given by the NHS. We are the only agency providing specialist palliative care* in north, south and west Dorset.

Our job is to support people in Dorset affected by cancer and other life-limiting diseases, largely at the end of life. We work both with patients and their families. We also provide respite services for people with complex long-term progressive conditions. As the only specialist agency in the area we also educate our colleagues in primary care and the acute and independent sectors on how to deliver high quality generalist palliative care.

We support patients living at home through our specialist nursing service , social groups and day hospices in Weymouth, Dorchester and Shaftesbury. People needing in-patient services come to Joseph Weld Hospice in Dorchester for symptom control, respite or end of life care.

We use doctors, nurses, physiotherapists, occupational therapists, a chaplain, complementary therapists, art and music therapists, social workers, bereavement workers and over 250 patient care volunteers to do our work.
