In 1987 the hospice begin to take shape. We worked hard to plan, secure the site and raise enough money.
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.
Following a two year fundraising appeal…
The In Patient Unit was officially opened in February 2002 by Her Majesty The Queen.
And since then…
The services have expanded to offer a Lymphoedema Clinic as well as a wide variety of complementary treatments.Recently a Bereavement and Family Support Centre was opened. For photos visit our gallery.
The hospice is looking towards a bright and exciting future under the new leadership of Karen Griffiths and this year we’re celebrating our 25th year of providing care! See our events calendar packed full of celebratory events.
