This is a 1962 paper that describes some of Cicely Saunders' early experiences of working at St Joseph's — the context in which so much of the practical detail of her clinical expertise was elaborated in the years after qualifying in medicine. Notably, the article contains the first reference in her writings to the idea of a hospice as ‘a stopping place for pilgrims’.
