Wednesday 28th February was an exciting and high profile evening for Woking & Sam Beare Hospices, and some of our supporters, at Number 11 Downing Street.
The evening was an opportunity to thank some of our supporters but to also share with them our vision for the future.
Jayne Cooper, CEO of Woking & Sam Beare Hospices, commented “The face of hospice care and its role within the community is changing. At Woking & Sam Beare Hospices it is our common goal to deliver high quality specialist care and support to anyone with a life-limiting illness, at the time they need it and in the place of their choice. We recognise that one size does not fit all and in order to be a true centre of excellence we need to be innovative in how we are able to increase our reach. Accessibility of our services is as important as the quality.”
Guests had the opportunity to hear about some of the work that the hospice is championing across the Surrey region, such as targeting unrepresented groups such as dementia patients and those from different ethnic and religious groups, as well as the LGBT+ community.
Woking & Sam Beare Hospices was the first to sign up to the John’s Campaign, which is a national approach to how the UK can better cater for the needs of patients with dementia. This is just one of many ways the hospice is working to achieve its vision for the future.
“There are many future opportunities and the projects outlined at our No. 11 Downing Street event are just the tip of the iceberg. I am excited about the future of hospice care and I feel honoured to be leading such an innovative and forward thinking organisation such as Woking & Sam Beare Hospices.” added Jayne “But we could not do all we do without the generosity of our community”.
