Healthcare professionals and student placements

At Demelza we work in partnership with other private, voluntary and statutory organisations, including the NHS, social care and other hospices, to ensure families receive the best possible care and support.

We involve and work alongside community services to provide a seamless transition from hospice to home, ensuring there is an appropriate care package in place within the family home if needed.

Our staff support carers to feel competent and confident in caring for your child.

Student placements

Demelza offers placements to second and third year student nurses following a paediatric or learning disability pathway, from the University of Greenwich, University of Kent, Canterbury Christ Church University, London South Bank University and King's College London.

Students will be allocated a mentor and can be placed at our two hospices, Demelza Kent and Demelza SEL.

At Demelza we also have opportunities for other students including those studying music and art therapy at Goldsmiths, University of London and social work students from the University of Greenwich.
