Covid vaccinations have begun for HHFT staff
including our own Hospice staff. CoBH’s mezzanine area is being used as the vaccination station for Andover staff. Our staff have been trained to be part of the ‘Jab Squad’, vaccinating and protecting our key workers.

Please note this is for NHS staff only – we are not a public vaccination hub.  Please wait until you are called to be vaccinated.

 

 

A Heartfelt Message

With the current visitor restrictions, there are patients who are unable to have anyone with them.  This is extremely difficult for patients, their relatives and our staff.   These simple blank wooden hearts are a small token of how we are trying to provide some comfort in these dark days.  Relatives can give messages for their loved one over the phone or by email. Our staff write them on the hearts on their behalf and the hearts are then hung on the patients bed or nearby.

 

 

Our Gardens are Finished  

‘Mr Partridge’ has become a regular visitor to the new Hospice Gardens. You can also visit our gardens with our virtual tour.
