#31: St Wilfrid’s Hospice with Soline Jerram and Suzy O’Callaghan

A first for The Business of Healthcare Podcast – we have two guests on this episode! Soline Jerram and Suzy O’Callaghan are both from St Wilfrid’s Hospice - Soline is the Chair of Trustees while Suzy is the Director of Nursing. They have a clear mission and aim to create a strong culture based on quality and kindness.

Soline and Suzy join me today to share how St Wilfrid’s Hospice is a charity and how it’s so important for them to be entrepreneurial and business minded. They talk about their core services, their reliance on volunteers and other income streams from retail. They share what makes them work best as a team and their leadership styles. They also touch on the perceptions of hospices, that they aren’t a sad place, they are a place helping people live life as best they can.


“There’s so much kindness, care and thoughtfulness amongst the staff, volunteers and the community and when they get connected it’s a joy to be a part of.” – Soline Jerram
