What is a Service User Group? 

Our Service User Group is a small group of people including patients, carers, friends and/or family members who come together to meet and discuss ways in which The Hospice of the Good Shepherd care is delivered and how it can be improved.  Our aim is to ensure that the views and opinions of people whose lives have been affected by a life limiting condition are used for improving people’s care and for shaping future Hospice services.

Who can join?

Anyone who has experience of using our Hospice services as a patient, carer, friends and/or family members either currently or in the past 12 months are welcome to join.

When will the Service User Group meet and how often?

We will be holding our first meeting on Friday 26th January from 2-4pm in The Living Well Centre at the Hospice. At the first meeting the group will decide how often it will be meet over the first year and the day and time of future meetings.
