Ahead of our Recruitment Day for Nurses and Physiotherapists we spoke to Lizzy Jenkins, Senior Staff Nurse and Research Nurse at Coventry Myton Hospice, about what it’s like to work at The Myton Hospices.


Here’s what she had to say:

Working at The Myton Hospices is both worthwhile and rewarding.

The people we get to care for everyday are such a source of inspiration to me and this is coupled by being part of a charity that desires high standards of care for patients and their loved ones.

I find working as a nurse on the in-patient unit challenging and it consistently provides opportunity for me to maintain good levels of clinical skill whilst honing my communication and interpersonal skills.

One shift is never the same as the next and the variety of conditions, treatment plans and nursing interventions required keeps me on my toes.

There is always something new to learn!

Flexible working, free parking, and good allowances of annual leave are incentives for working here but to be honest I am a palliative care nurse because I have always known that end of life care is unique and a field of interest I wanted to invest in.

Not all our patients come to die at the hospice, some go home to live for several more months but when we do get to share in the moment of death for a patient it really is a privilege, and I never take that for granted.

A day on the unit can involve complex symptom control management, intricate drug regimes, skilled tissue viability assessment and interventions involving care of indwelling catheters, intravenous therapies, tracheostomies, permanent or temporary drains, nasogastric tubes, PEGs and stoma care.

There is always something going on to help keep my clinical skills up and the skills gained in this specialism can be transferred to so many other areas in the future.

Advanced communication skills can be gained and there are constant opportunities to learn and develop.

Myton have also become increasingly research active over the years and so clinical research is another area that I find fascinating and love getting involved in both personally and with patients and carers.

The work here can be emotionally demanding and this is where reflective practice and the need for a supportive and understanding team come in to play, both of which Myton encourage.

I have never regretted entering into palliative care and right from undergraduate level I knew this was the speciality for me.

Many years later I still don’t regret it!
