Together we can make it happen!
The new Inpatient Unit offers outstanding value for money as well as greater efficiency and sustainability for the future. Had a new site been required for a new Inpatient Unit, the costs would have been significantly greater. This development ensures that we keep all Hospice-based patient services in one location. Temporarily relocating the Inpatient Unit while we rebuild the unit at Brentry ensures that patient care can be maintained to the highest standards throughout the works. When the new Inpatient Unit opens in October 2018, it will meet the increasingly complex nature of patient needs and care for many years to come.
Meeting our planned opening date of October 2018 means we must secure the funding shortfall of £2.53m by this date.
The Hospice relies on its loyal, local support from many people who give small amounts which collectively help towards the £19,000 a day running costs. We will ask existing and new supporters for help with this capital appeal, but cannot afford to jeopardise our revenue funding which must be maintained throughout. Securing local leadership gifts of sufficient magnitude for the capital appeal is essential: in addition to helping reduce the shortfall, such gifts act as leverage when we approach national funders and will help us achieve the momentum required to hit the target in the timeframe.
