Michael Sobell Hospice Inpatient Unit (IPU) re-opened on 15 January 2020 after the completion of a three-month refurbishment project and welcomed its first patient, Miriam Miles shortly afterwards.
Miriam, from Rickmansworth, was diagnosed with breast cancer over six years ago and during her stay in the IPU worked with the physiotherapy and Hospice team to help regain strength.
Commenting on the care she received from nursing staff, Miriam said: “I didn’t know there were so many angels around.”
Ophelia Chambers-Henry, Events & Community Fundraiser at Michael Sobell Hospice Charity, said: “Michael Sobell Hospice exists to serve the community and provide end of life care to those who may need it today, or in the future. Going forward, we need to maximise our fundraising efforts to ensure this vital service continues for many more years to come for those people who need our care and support.”
The funds received through the Charity’s membership of the Hospice Lottery Partnership make an incredible difference to the support that we are able to provide the Hospice Inpatient Unit and Day Therapy Unit. We would like to extend our sincere thanks to everyone who purchases lottery tickets for their continuous generosity and loyalty to the Scheme.
