We understand that these measures may cause a great deal of distress for patients and their loved ones.
We are keen to facilitate communication between patients and family, with the following methods:
Window visits, available Monday - Sunday
These decisions have not been made easily. Hospice Care is all about holistic care and putting the patient at the heart of all we do. In these unprecedented times we cannot put our patients and staff at risk as this will impact on the quality of care we provide to all our patients.
We hope that you will understand why we are taking these measures, and trust that we will lift them as soon as it is safe to do so.
Thank you for your cooperation in these very difficult times.
The decision has been taken to close the Vitality Centre, apart from for prearranged appointments and telephone consultations. These appointments will take place as usual, but you will be asked to wash your hands on entry to the Vitality Centre and before your appointment.
To minimise risk to patients and staff, the hospice kindly asks that any volunteers who have returned from abroad should refrain from working for 14 days after arrival in the UK.
We’d also ask that any volunteers with any symptoms such as fever or a dry cough should refrain from working for 14 days. We would also ask that they follow all governmental advice on self-isolation.
All of our shops are closed until further notice. We would kindly ask that you do not leave donations outside of closed shops.
Thank you for your understanding.
Our lottery collectors are no longer calling on our lottery players to collect their subscriptions.

Sadly, we have taken the difficult decision to cancel all of our fundraising events until September. This includes the Starlight Ladies Walk, March to the Match, Dragonboat Racing and Golf Day. If you have signed up for one of these events, you will be contacted shortly by our supporter care team. If you have any questions please email firstname.lastname@example.org
The advice is changing regularly, so please keep checking our website for the latest guidance, as well as following governmental advice.
We will also keep our website and Facebook page updated with any changes to our services, should they occur.
