Since the start of the Covid-19 outbreak, we have followed all UK Government and Public Health England guidelines and best practice to ensure everyone at the hospice and across the charity is protected as much as possible.
From 19 July, we still have a duty of care for the health, safety and wellbeing of our staff, volunteers and people who use our services. We will continue to have Covid-secure measures in place which will be decided by the regular reviews of our ongoing risk assessments. Each service and department has its own Covid-secure risk assessment and we will continue to assess risks and put measure in place to maintain as safe an environment as possible.
We are working hard to continue to support and care for those people who need us the most during this difficult time.
Our Clinical Services have been adapted accordingly and we are still accepting referrals.
- Our Wellbeing Services are now welcoming patients back for face to face sessions, in limited numbers in a safe and managed way. Some services remain available online
- Our Counselling Services are delivering more sessions face to face along with continuing to offer telephone and Zoom sessions
- Our Hospice at Home nurses continue to provide vital end of life care for patients in their own homes
- Our new Roaming Nurse Service is going from strength to strength

Visiting the main hospice building
If you wish to drop off a monetary donation at the main hospice building to support us during this challenging time, we ask that you please follow the current government guidelines.
Due to Covid-19, our income will be seriously affected for a long time to come. You can help us to be there always, at the most emotional and difficult time of someone’s life.
We’re grateful for any donations, big or small. Thank you.
