While preparing to cope with the impact of Coronavirus on its end of life care and bereavement services over the coming weeks, St Elizabeth Hospice has launched an urgent appeal to the public to support their local hospice in light of all fundraising events being postponed and all 31 retail shops closing.

The clinical staff at St Elizabeth are working in partnership with the NHS and other partners at speed to significantly expand services both in the community and at the hospice in response to Coronavirus, whilst continuing to care for patients with non-Covid end of life and palliative care needs.

A new rapid response co-ordination centre has been created in the past week to cope with the expected increase in demand for clinical advice and end of life care in the community, doubling the capacity of the hospices existing OneCall telephone advice helpline.

Last year, the hospice cared for over 3,000 Suffolk patients and their families at a cost of £10.5m, of which 75% was raised by the community through the shops and local fundraising income-generating activities which are now impossible due to social distancing and self-isolation.

£12 could pay for a 20 minute call to received by OneCall, our 24/7 advice line.

£20 could pay for 1 hour of nurse time to care for a patient.

£30 could pay for an hour of counselling support for patients and families.

If you prefer to donate by phone please call the fundraising office on 01473 723600 (Monday - Friday, 9am-5pm)
