Always there to care

Our history

In 1987 the hospice begin to take shape. We worked hard to plan, secure the site and raise enough money.

Lindsey Lodge Hospice

Lindsey Lodge Hospice

Why was it built?

Because the number of people dying in the hospital in our area was above the national average and the Macmillan nursing team needed our support. We wanted to improve the care patients received.

In 1992 the hospice was born. The Duchess of Norfolk kindly opened the Day Care Centre and hospice care for the people of North Lincolnshire.

What happened next?

We realised patients needed beds. Brumby Hospital closed and patients  had to be admitted to a very busy Scunthorpe General Hospital which was not ideal.
