Blythe House staff facilitate education and training workshops and retreats for healthcare professionals and the general public on a regular basis and these cover a range of subjects. Like many other hospices, we believe that it is part of our role to educate others in the areas we know about. We have a strong learning culture and good training facilities. People find our venue comfortable and feel welcome. They also value the chance to network with others working in their field.
Our training events are open to professionals and others who support those affected by life-threatening illness or bereavement. Events run by our Children and Young People's team can be useful for anyone working with or caring for children.
