Regrettably we are unable to allow visitors to the hospice at this time. In exceptional circumstances, visits may be permitted by prior arrangement with the Ward Manager. This is to ensure the safety of our patients and staff.

As a result of the government’s instructions regarding physical distancing and avoiding non-essential travel, we are regrettably unable to allow any visitors to the hospice at this time.  This includes visits to the inpatient unit, unless you have made a prior arrangement with the Ward Manager who may agree a request, in exceptional circumstances.

We have made this difficult decision to ensure the safety of our patients and staff and therefore reserve the right to decline any request to visit the hospice.

Please ask to speak to the nurse in charge, who will be able to help you as we will endeavour to support our patients and families to find alternative ways of keeping in touch during this time.

All Remembrance services are cancelled until further notice. Many apologies and we will be in touch at a later date. Stay safe.

All eight of our hospice charity shops are also now closed.

Due to the need to cancel fundraising activity over the coming months, we are likely to experience a reduction in income. Your support – more than ever – is vital. With your help, we can care for people on the hospice ward and be there for vulnerable people in the local community at this unsettling time. Please donate to support them if you can.

If you have any further event or fundraising-related queries at this time, please contact the team on 01444 471598.
