The new Rapid Response overnight service in South Warwickshire is up and running!


Staff from The Myton Hospices, Shakespeare Hospice, Shipston Home Nursing and South Warwickshire NHS Foundation Trust (SWFT) came together to celebrate the new service, which started on 29th April.


Tea and cake at the Shakespeare Hospice...

in Stratford and at Warwick Myton Hospice was the perfect way to celebrate the roll-out of the new service and meet the teams involved in bringing it to fruition. It also gave everyone a chance to thank Sir John Egan and his wife Lady Egan who very generously sponsored the service and were an integral part of making it a reality.



The service, which is available...

between 8pm and 8am to those living at home or in care homes that are known to be approaching the end of their lives, is staffed by experienced Registered Nurses and Senior Health Care Assistants.  They will work to enable people to remain at home if this is their wish and the wish of their family. This expert care will contribute to an end of life experience for local people which is as comfortable and dignified as possible.
