St Gemma's Hospice are a Leeds-based charity providing expert care and support for local people with terminal illnesses.
St Gemma's Hospice was founded by the Sisters of the Cross and Passion and opened in 1978. Care is based on a simple idea; that the person is more than the illness. Each of us, sick or well, has unique physical, emotional, social and spiritual needs. St Gemma's tries to respond to these needs in ways which place the highest value on respect, choice and empowerment.
Care is offered to patients and their carers in the Hospice's In-Patient Unit, through the St Gemma's community nursing and medical team and via a range of Day Services.
St Gemma's employs over 250 staff and 900 volunteers, every one of whom has an essential part to play in the running of its services.
The Care Quality Commission rated St Gemma's care as 'outstanding'. This reflects the efforts and commitment of staff and volunteers to provide the best possible care and support to patients and their loved ones, both in the Hospice and out across the community.
All their work is underpinned by their vision, purpose and values. The dedication and commitment to their vision and purpose, to innovate and make the Hospice the best place it can be for patients, carers and colleagues is what makes the Hospice a great place to work.
