Preparing for the future...

Over the last 25-30 years the hospice movement has steadily evolved from ward style Inpatient Units (usually based in hospitals) to purpose-built hospices with multi-bedded rooms. However, the hospice now needs a more significant change to meet current best practice and the needs of the community.

The total cost of the project is £2.36 million, of which we have a fundraising target of £860,000, and our aim is to complete it by Christmas 2023!

Any donations towards the project will be hugely appreciated by the Nightingale House team and most importantly, the families we care for.

The project involves a complete transformation of the Inpatient Unit and the patients and their families are at the heart of the project. Whilst we are building within the existing footprint, everything but the external walls and roof will change, a major reconfiguration of the ward, including replacing the current conservatory with an additional patient room. This will create 12 individual patient rooms instead of our existing 10 patient rooms.

The care we provide for future families will be greatly enhanced by the Phase 4 plans. Information sheet download

Take the tour...

Our direct referrals system improves services accessibility to families in need. We have tried to meet patient goals and expectations by being flexible and fulfil their wishes and dreams by our multidisciplinary team pulling together. That’s what makes a hospice environment so special and why so many families often want to give something back by fundraising. If you’re not sure what services we offer or feel that you or a member of your family might benefit from accessing our services including the inpatient unit then please call us to discuss this.
