Why join our team?

Steve opens up about his late wife, Linda - or Lin to her friends - and her time spent with the hospice after her cancer diagnosis, and what the hospice means to him:

"If you’re fortunate in life, you will meet that one person who is as much a part of you as your own body and soul. For me, that person was Linda... If I can sum up St Barnabas in one word, it would be ‘comforting’. Compared to hospitals which are busy and methodical, I couldn’t believe how tranquil the hospice felt. The staff were never rushed, and Lin loved the beautiful gardens and homecooked food."
