Our Training

Our education team is passionate about supporting others to provide excellent patient centred palliative and end of life care to the people of Bolton and the wider communities.

We remain committed to ensuring that education is available to all, and that it remains interesting, relevant and is an enjoyable experience for all of our learners.

We have strong, established partnerships with both Bolton NHS Foundation Trust and the University of Bolton and together we seek to maintain palliative and end of life care education as a priority and direct the delivery of palliative care locally and in line with local and national priorities. 

Who is the education for?

Our training courses are designed to meet the needs of a variety of practitioners, and those with a keen interest in palliative and end of life care or bereavement. Please refer to our latest ​Education Prospectus for details of our courses.

What education do we provide?

We aim to be responsive to the needs of the healthcare workers of Bolton. Our education programmes draw on the expertise of many members of the palliative care team here and in the wider community, and include updates on symptom management, bereavement, communication skills, spirituality and disease management.
