Bernard has lung cancer, but he isn’t about to take it lying down, so when he has to go into the local hospice, St. Righteous, for symptom control he’s none too happy. As a retired Detective Inspector he doesn’t suffer fools gladly and unfortunately he finds St. Righteous full of fools. It’s only when he teams up with Sheila, a larger than life Health Care Assistant and Dr. John, a part time GP at the hospice and his mongrel dog Rocky that things begin to look up. A series of events leads the three of them to realise that all is not well at St. Righteous and when a mysterious benefactor appears, Bernard’s professional curiosity gets the better of him and puts them all in mortal danger. 

I hope you enjoy this light hearted look at the inside workings of the fictional hospice of St. Righteous. A place that exemplifies the ‘warm and fuzzy’ nature of hospice care and a classic example of how behind the often grand and therapeutic façade, the insidious grasp of power, complacency, snobbery and egos out of control can lead to it all going spectacularly wrong.
