The charity, which cares for patients across East Devon, has a new website which is the culmination of a year of technical improvements.

The new web page is more user friendly and provides resources and advice for healthcare professionals, patients and their families.

Hospiscare has also launched a free digital service for care home staff offering virtual clinic appointments and meetings with the charity’s end-of-life care teams.

Tina Naldrett, director of clinical services at Hospiscare, said: “We really want to encourage people to use our digital platforms as a way of reaching us, as well as coming to our clinics and ward or having visits at home.

“Using these platforms allows us to support our community safely in many different ways.”
