Thank you to C Electrical. For donating and installing a Aico Ei08 CO detector for our boiler house.

Donations to the hospice come in lots of different ways, we have donations like this one, donations via our shops and donations of people’s time like our much needed volunteers.

We receive money donations in lots of different way too, via fundraising, donations, Friends of the hospice and legacies

The list is bigger than this but the point we are making is that every type of donation makes a huge difference to the hospice.

re- opening of Bassetlaw Hospice

The official reopening of Bassetlaw Hospice took place on Thursday 25th January 2024 with Sir John Peace CVO CSTJ as the guest of honour.

The hospice was originally opened in May 1995 by Her Royal Highness, The Duchess of Gloucester GCVO.

The Charity invested 1.2 million pounds in the extension and refurbishment of the hospice, making the hospice wider and creating the first floor. The hospice went from a 6 to an 8 inpatient bedded unit, with new relative accommodation on the ground floor. The first floor accommodates a large meeting room, office spaces, staff room and changing rooms.

The rebuild took 18 months to complete and the doors opened just before the covid pandemic took us into lockdown, preventing a grand reopening taking place. Bassetlaw Hospice remained open during the pandemic as an inpatient unit, but with limited use of the new Support and wellbeing center.   

The Chairman of Bassetlaw Hospice, Michael Quigley MBE stated “We are delighted to be able to now officially re-open the hospice and would like to thank all the staff for all their hard work and dedication during the re-build, it presented us with some challenges, but we are pleased with the outcome. Thank you to Sir John Peace for taking the time to re-open the building for us today and to everyone who has attended.

The Hospice is proud to be able to support patients and their families throughout the whole of their palliative journey. This is possible through both outpatient services in the Support and Wellbeing center, and inpatient care provided through the 8 inpatient beds. Within their Support and Wellbeing center they offer many services including a weekly physiotherapy exercise and education session, and a weekly nurse-led group with a timetable of activities and ongoing support. The inpatient unit provides 24/7 nursing care for patients either needing specialist input for symptom management, or for those requiring end of life care. These services are all complimented by the addition of an Complementary therapist  and a hairdresser.

Bassetlaw Hospice holds a community coffee morning every Friday from 10am until 12pm, this is open to the general public of all ages and includes free tea, coffee and cakes. The hospice welcomes tours around the hospice and you ca make arrangements to do this via the Hospice.
