Hi, I'm Naureen Khan, St Luke's Engagement and Quality Officer.
I’ve been with St Luke’s for seven years, and it's been a long but rewarding journey, reaching out to communities who are unfamiliar with the concept of hospice care.
Many of the people I talk to initially assume that everything comes with a price tag, so they find it hard to believe that this level of unlimited, specialist care and attention is provided free of charge. Honestly, it took me some time to fully grasp the extent of the support available without cost.
I spend most of my time out in the community, and people now recognise me as the St Luke’s lady. This means that individuals often approach me with questions, and I will reassure them and point them in the right direction for the support they need.
We have supported so many families now, and people are speaking about our work and even organising fundraising events for us – I've hosted many coffee mornings and workshops in the community!
Seeing people looked after the way they should be looked after and taking away their worry and even put a smile on their faces is very satisfying to me, knowing that I have helped make a positive change for them - that stays with me forever.
