The Myton Hospices are award-winning when it comes to diversity

DIVERSITY is at the heart of The Myton Hospices’ services – and that’s official.

The charity – which has hospices in Warwick, Rugby and Coventry – was a finalist in two categories at the Palliative and End of Life Care Awards.

The awards, handed out by Care Talk magazine, recognise and celebrate excellence in palliative and end of life care in social and hospice care settings across the UK.

And on the night, The Myton Hospices won ‘Highly Commended’ in The Diversity and Inclusion Award category for its dedication to enhancing diversity and inclusivity among staff, volunteers, patients and families, as well as ensuring equitable access for those not yet utilising their services.

It was also a finalist in The Partnership Working Across Health and Social Care category for their Citizens Advice service, in partnership with Citizens Advice Coventry and funded by Macmillan. This hospice-based advice service for patients and their loved ones offers free-of-charge, advice covering a wide variety of concerns, such as benefits, finances, housing, social and welfare issues.

The aim is to provide a helping hand through some of the issues that can arise from being diagnosed with a life-limiting illness.

Myton CEO Ruth Freeman said: “Our team at Myton are thrilled to be finalists for two prestigious awards, and to be ‘Highly Commended’ for our diversity and inclusion work. We believe that everyone matters for every single moment of their life, and this recognition underscores our unwavering commitment to providing holistic palliative and end of life care.

“We strive to ensure that every individual receives the support and information they need, from accessing our services to understanding the grants and benefits they are entitled to, to alleviate unnecessary stress during an extremely difficult time.”
