Leamington Editorial 11th Oct, 2022 Updated: 12th Oct, 2022   0

THE MYTON Hospices is holding a recruitment day for nurses and physiotherapists.

There are vacancies for staff nurses and physiotherapists at both the Warwick and Coventry Hospices.

The recruitment day is being held at Coventry Myton Hospice on Saturday October 22 from 10am to 4pm.

And anyone interested is welcome to drop in any time on the day, meet the team and have a tour of the hospice.




Refreshments will also be provided.

Myton is a well-respected local charity, providing person-centred, holistic and compassionate care for patients and their families living with terminal illnesses across Coventry and Warwickshire.


Senior Staff Nurse, Kerry Merry, has worked for Myton since January 2020. Previously she worked at George Eliot Hospital for 25 years.

Kerry works on the Inpatient Unit at Coventry Myton Hospice and first joined the team as a bank nurse in 2019 before taking up her permanent post.

When asked what she enjoys most about working at Myton Kerry said: “The time I have to spend with patients and their families, to talk to them and find out what is important to them. It is a privilege to be able to help people to fulfil their dying wishes – we often arrange weddings, vow renewals and birthday parties.

“We recently brought forward a 16th birthday party so that a patient could celebrate with her daughter, as we knew she would sadly die before the milestone. It is an honour to help create these special moments and lasting memories.

“We also welcome family pets and as a dog lover that is another perk for me. It’s just another example of what makes working here so different – we really do go above and beyond to make patients and their families last days together as happy and comfortable as possible.

“We are not just about end of life care though, we also offer symptom control and pain management so that people can be discharged home.”

Kerry added: “It really is a great place to work with lots of opportunities, training and support.”
