Our current building has served us well for over 26 years however it no longer meets the demands of our community. Insufficient in-patient capacity often delays admissions resulting in patients having to be admitted into an acute hospital rather than the hospice. The Day Care Centre is operating at its maximum patient quota three days a week. Extra space is needed to accommodate additional patients especially those suffering from more complex conditions.
With the Hospice at Home Service and the new Hospice Home Care Team both based at the hospice office space is at a premium, neither do we have enough storage space especially for the many pieces of equipment used to provide care to all our patients.
