These are challenging times for everyone and St Elizabeth Hospice is no exception. Every day brings new information so we are regularly reviewing the care we can provide to families to offer the best support possible with the staff available.

We are working closely with our colleagues at the local hospitals, GP surgeries and other organisations. Whatever happens, we expect there to be an increased need for our highly skilled staff and their expertise in delivering end of life care and support.

We thank our staff and volunteers for their continued hard work and dedication, all pulling together to do what we can to help the wider community. During this difficult time as a local hospice, we really value our friends more than ever to help us provide vital care for those who need us most.
