Open days at your new hospice this week

Join us at your new hospice for a the first of three public open days this Saturday 29 April, 10am to 1pm. There is no need to book, just drop in.

We are looking forward to welcoming our local community and supporters into the new 20-bed state-of-the-art hospice in Goldsworth Park.

The three free drop-in events will run from 10am to 1pm on Saturday 29 April, 3pm to 8pm on Tuesday 2 May, and 10am to 4pm on Wednesday 3 May at the hospice in Goldsworth Park Centre, Woking, GU21 3LG.

Visitors will be able to tour the building to see Wellbeing Centre and in-patient facilities, and speak to staff and volunteers about the new purpose built facilities and how they’ll benefit patients, their loved ones and the hospice staff in delivering care. Refreshments will be available in the café area.

The new hospice will enable increasingly joined-up end-of-life care delivered from a centre of excellence. The Wellbeing Centre is adjacent to physiotherapy and counselling suites within the building, allowing quick and easy access to a range of support. Training facilities for staff will also promote the sharing of up-to-date knowledge and techniques within the hospice itself and with its partner organisations.

Over 70 per cent of Woking & Sam Beare Hospices’ work will continue to be delivered in people’s own homes across North West Surrey. The community nursing teams (one will continue to be based in Weybridge, one in the new hospice) will be able to access a comprehensive range of joined-up clinical and therapeutic support for those receiving treatment at home.
