The Hospice Medical Directors/Medical Leads group has recently been set up under the leadership of Dr Christine Mott. At the inaugural meeting she said that "being a Hospice Medical Lead can be quite isolating with no large team around for support. If this group could offer support to each other that would be a useful purpose."
The group has met once and will continue to meet on a quarterly basis. Their Terms of Reference are still under construction but it is likely that topics to be discussed and shared will include workforce issues, medical models, sharing difficult cases, access and management of medications, etc.
If there are Medical Directors or Medical Leads working in a hospice who are not yet part of this group and would like to be, please contact mailto: email@example.com for further details.
