Clinical Nurse Specialist Catherine Jackson has been working at Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice for almost six years after leaving the NHS, starting out as a staff nurse and doing various other roles along the way.

“From the first day I visited Bluebell Wood I could tell it was a really special place. Something just clicked and I knew it was what I wanted to do. 

“What sets Bluebell Wood apart is that you have the chance to be a significant part of a child’s journey, however long it may be."

"You get the opportunity to see them enjoying life and build those relationships with families, rather than it just being a brief snapshot.

“Providing this holistic care for the whole family is an incredibly important part of this. We do all we can to meet families’ needs, whatever they may be. I can honestly say it’s a privilege to be able to do so."

“At Bluebell Wood we’re very much in it together, and I love being part of a supportive team. Whether that’s in my work in care or in my career development, it really does make a huge difference.

“One family once said to me that Bluebell Wood feels like their extended family, which I think sums it up perfectly.”
