Community Team Leader Mandy Binney joined the Care Team at Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice in 2015 after a 28 year career in the NHS. Joining as a Care Team Nurse, Mandy now leads the growing Community Team at Bluebell Wood.

“I’m incredibly proud to wear my purple Bluebell Wood T-shirt and I’m passionate about the work we do here.

“Care in a children’s hospice is very different to anywhere else. At Bluebell Wood we’re able to spend quality time with children and families, without having the constant ward pressures you might encounter elsewhere. 

“We’re able to form those meaningful relationships with families and we’re very much led by their individual needs. This is what nursing is all about for me. 

“Bluebell Wood is about fulfilling dreams to the best of our ability, however big or small."

"It may be something as simple as dipping a toe in the sea or making a special shopping trip – we always do what we can to make it happen. No two days are ever the same at Bluebell Wood.

“We can’t change the journey the children, young people and families are going on, but we can lighten their load and help them make beautiful memories along the way.

“That’s why it really is a pleasure to come to work each day, and I absolutely love what I do.”
