Professional courses and open days

COVID-19 update: All courses and study days are currently postponed until further notice. 

We welcome healthcare professionals to visit us at Shooting Star Children’s Hospice to learn more about the care we provide and how we can work together. We also offer a variety of professional courses throughout the year.

Professional open days at our hospices

We welcome visits from healthcare professionals including nurses, social workers and doctors to help provide a better understanding of the service we provide.

Once a month we host professional open days at each of our hospices. The visit starts with a presentation about Shooting Star Children’s Hospices which includes the history, what services are available, referral criteria and process as well as how the service is funded. This is followed by a tour of the hospice with the opportunity to ask questions and find out more from a member of our care team.

To find out more and to book a visit email or call 01483 230960 (Christopher’s, Guildford) or 020 8783 2000 (Shooting Star House, Hampton).
