Heather Barley (Mitchell) oversees both our Hospice at Home Service and the Serious Illness Support Service. She is a registered nurse, passionate about community based palliative care. She has worked in Primary care for most of her nursing career as a District Nurse, Practice Nurse and as a Hospice at Home Nursing Manager.
Heather was awarded the title of Queen’s Nurse in 2008, one of only 40 such nurses in the country at that time. This was a formal recognition of her commitment to promoting the highest standards of patient care within the Hospice at Home setting.
She has previously spent three years on the Executive Committee at the National Association for Hospice at Home, only leaving to spend time with her newly adopted children. Following her break, she re-joined the Association in 2015 as a Trustee.
Our nurses are all highly trained, experienced, registered nurses who are supported by skilled and dedicated HCAs. It’s of utmost importance that they keep up to date with the latest industry training. They regularly attend seminars, study days and expert talks.
